And, just like me, some time to delete your spams. :-)

How many people? I think just a few of them use multiple addresses
to comminucate on a particular list. BTW, why should one receive
an email in one account/identity and use another account/identity
to reply? (When I think it only makes sense for the posts which
are the first in the thread)

IMHO, it's better to prohibit the spams, but if that makes
some barriers for people and if this is what most members
want, then certainly I can live with it. :-)

Mohsen,
