And there is no way in this universe to know that anything in the
message (with the possible exception of the Received header your MTA
wrote) is not a forgery.

My statement is true.

And I'm not going around this loop again.  If you think spamming is
good, I'm not going to change your mind.  If you think it is bad, I
don't need to.

Sending unsolicited bulk email (under any guise) is spamming.

take everything you have."
