Correct. More and more, anti-spammers are annoying me more than
the spammers. Anti-spammers tend to "make my problem YOUR problem"
thinking. Be it mangled sender addresses (this "NOSPAM" nonsense),
be it 450 to suspected spam.

Antispanners seem to be very easy in accepting collateral damage
to the net.
