This was my point.  Have we already come to the day where regular e-mail
forwarding is no longer workable?  If so, we'll adapt, naturally, but I
didn't think that day had come yet.  And I didn't think Bellsouth would be
leading the way.

Bellsouth hasn't even said they want forwarding eliminated or filtered;
they are just being obstinate and unhelpful.
