Why does fixing the SMTP email architecture by applying some
lessons learned from BGP peering lead people to talk about
X.400, UUCP, Bitnet, Fidonet and other obsolete protocols?

You're right, it's 2005 and we have suffered from email
SPAM for 10 years now, getting worse every year. So when
are we going to admit that SMTP-based email is *NOT* the
superior solution for email that we all thought it was
in 1995?
