Crippling protocols won't help, in the long run. What will help is
the use of a baseball bat, properly applied. Unfortunately, although
it would probably be *cheaper* to hire <insert ethnic organized crime
group> to simply whack the cluelessmailers.org list of top 100
offenders, network providers fall into two distinct classes:
1) Companies with *some* sense of morals/conscience - they won't do
that sort of thing.
2) Companies that *would* stoop so low - they won't do it either
because that would be attacking their own revenue stream.
