My point was that simply saying "don't allow spam sources to connect
to you" doesn't get us anywhere because the next question is "how do
we identify a spam source?"  Which is pretty much the same as "how
do we stop spam?" - it's brought us back to the beginning.

(this is not a invitation for people to tell me their favourite ways
of guessing which sources will be spam, I too have my favourite
ways, and all our ways are imperfect)
