Spam Arrest Sender VerificationYesterday we held an amusing discussion which 
highlighted the futility of using (badly implemented) technological 'solutions' to a 
social problem...

Herewith I attach a response received pursuant to a list contribution. Does this 
'gentleman' seriously expect every list contributor to provide him with a personal 
service requesting permission to be allowed to post to him? What happens if dozens of 
his colleagues join up? BTW I will, happily, for my hourly fee (minimum charge four 

Suggest that the list 'rules' be updated to point out that such requirements are 
unlikely to be received favorably, so if he wants to join the community he needs to do 
'join' us (not vice-versa).

NB I know that technically I've broken my/the list's rules by reproducing this in 
HTML, and have done so that those who can, are able to see the stupidity in its full 
glory/know which service NOT to use...
