I use one of my real emails in Usenet, yet don't read any spam. It isnt' a problem
for me, because of my aggressive filters through various methods.
The fact is that I should be able to post with a real email, and not have irritating
spam clogging up the works. This does mean that I sometimes block entire
sets of patterns (I don't care if it is country or relay source, or anything like that),
but I also can post my email and don't have excessive spam anymore.
Receiving ISPs can sometimes do more than an individual user (because of seeing
patterns of spam), but I also subscribe to some sendmail friendly databases also.
it isn't trivial to keep spam mostly out of my mailbox, but it is just necessary. I
do sometimes play tricks with those who try to connect to my firewall, including
trying to tie up their net connection and other things like that :-).
