I use check_sender_access and DISCARD to throw away about 1500-4000 messages a
day from .top domains (which is about the volume of my legit email). I looked
into it and most of them are registered to namecheap.com, which appears to sell
the names for for $.98 each. I did a little research into Namecheap's
reputation and I found one thread calling them friendly to spammers.
Not sure what to think about it.
