They're *still* easy to spot by backscatter levels, probably because
(a) a lot of people still have that switch set to "on" (b) some people
still switch it to "on" (c) Barracuda's engineers apparently think
that using SPF stops backscatter -- and it most emphatically does not.

Reject gooooood, bounce baaaaaaad. [1]

Now whether there are *other* ways to spot them: I don't know.  But
there are some very sharp people at Spamhaus, and it would not surprise
me if they knew.
