Or you can be a butthead and send out whitelisting challenges all over
Christendom and back while you try to get control of your spam
managing system like a comical fireman flopping about at the end of
a too-powerful hose. Whoaaa!!! Gemme offa this thing!

I've had to whitelist tons of CM folks. Spamassassin is hard
work. Especially when you've got butthead friends who take pleasure in
triggering your spam guards.

That said, I don't mind it so much, as I figure the work will
stabilize after a while, and I'll only have to do a limited amount of
whitelisting in the future.
