Karsten, what I really don't get is why a person like you who likes
doing research and pressing his points, can't be a little bit more
objective now and then. I agree with you (took some time, granted,
remember that thread many months ago started by that non-person?) that
C-R isn't a good solution to spam, but, if you look at it objectively,
there are some points stated in your C-R rant that don't apply to tmda.
You should grant them that, I think.
