I wish it were always so easy.  I've been talking to an administrator
lately who's policy is that "loosing occasional email is ok if it
means we keep out a whole bunch of spam".  If they're that far over
the fence I'd need a strong bull with a long rope to try to pull them
back to my side.  I keep trying to tell him I'm potentially losing
business due to his position, but he's convinced spam is worse.

Some people simply can't be educated.
