Uh, I don't understand this comment, Randy.  He was giving you a 
compliment -- your lucid posting showed that your net.freinds were not 
100% correct, when saying that "rational discussion of anti-spam seemed
socially impossible."

We _can_ have a rational discussion, it just doesn't seem to happen 
very often.  :-)

Meanwhile, although I do not use ORBS for blocking, I do occaisionally 
use it for testing.  Unfortunately, I used it for testing my site, and 
it discovered that the (commercial) mailing software still supports 
the old % hack, and now ORBS blocks the site.  I dunno why that is 
considered "spam".  Anyway, the commercial folks didn't know it was 
still in there, either, and it will be eradicated in the next release.
