And I would suggest that the first level of dealing with spam is by its
traffic characteristics and administrative characteristics. In other
words, while I am incredibly annoyed as a recipient of spam, I am most

mail bombs (original or retaliatory), looping spam software, exhausting
spool space, etc. These are not content issues.
