Yet he has so much trouble programming his mail filter to
differentiate between legitimate and spam email coming out of Google
that he feels the need to block all email from Google.

Are we to question his skill? Or just his judgment?

If Ron's as smart as you say then he's smart enough to take some
famous advice: "A decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires
that they should declare the causes."

If it's good enough for creating a country, it's good enough for a
lesser call to action -- like filtering an AS and its netblocks.
