that'd still involve the ISP inserting stuff in their nameservers.

when "isp admins" are substituted by "drones working out of templates / 
web forms" ...

ps - there's of course the rather umm... interesting content below ;)

I'm all in favor of it - but I'm still reluctant to dump legit mail 
that'll get dumped if I do this.  I'll have to be pushed a lot farther 
before I start doing this (and with spam levels increasing the way they 
are ...).
