No matter how the authors may "promote" their methods, most
people don't perceive that there's any great separation between
anti-spam and anti-forgery techniques. As far as they're
concerned, all e-mail threats are basically the same.
E-mail authentication's promise is that it will improve the
overall state of the global e-mail infrastructure. Chopping
that into smaller bits may be a fun intellectual exercise, but
it doesn't help explain what's going on to anyone outside of
our fairly small technology-focused circles.
J.D. Falk blong! you are a pickle!
