I feel fairly sure in saying that most mailing list software, newsgroup
software, and communication software in general, will allow you to
preemptively add people to your address book, subscription lists, etc. 
Every router and switch out there allows forged packets through them,
should we lambast the hardware manufacturers even though numerous
accompanying handbooks recommend good practice configurations?

Google has been very quick to deal with issues of spammers every time I
have brought it up.
