And it is *my* responsibility to reject UBE that shouldn't have been
generated in the first place, because...?
Blocking the UBE is not the solution; it is a bandage over a bleeding
artery. The solution is not to generate the UBE in the first place.
You'll note that, again, I am very explicitly not equating these to DSNs.
As I said before in N forms, I don't care what color of shirt the virus
"warning" wears; if sent to a forged address, it is UBE and deserved to be
treated as such.
