Yeah, but screw up _just_once_, and your address will be on every spam list
in China, and you'll get innundated.  In my case, the spam that gets through
outnumbers the legitimate e-mail; I have no idea how much goes in the
bit-bucket before it gets to the company's POP server.

Until they apply the "illegal access" laws and make spamming a crime, and
the knowing transmission of it a civil offense, those of us who must be
available will continue to seek technological defenses.
