I'm sorry to say it, but I'm glad. Killing off legit users of "consumer broadband" who want to use their own servers is, for me, going too far. I know we've had this discussion before and plenty of people don't agree, but I just think you're missing the forest for the trees, or cutting of your nose to spite your face or some other crap analogy. When you start blocking legit users deliberately - even if they are only one in a hundred - I think you've forgotten that the whole point of the exercise is to allow people to send email.

Anyway, I don't really want to spark another circular debate on this but I guess its become my personal bugbear.
