The problem with teergrubing is the detection of the spamming servers.
I'm wondering whether it would be feasible to slow mail delivery in general.
For most emails it wouldn't do any harm, they could be delayed for, say, one
hour without problems. For instantaneous communication there is IM.

Perhaps the codevelopment of spam and faster connections is not by chance.
In days of uucp and pathalias nobody thought of spam.

Fools ignore complexity. Pragmatists suffer it. Some can avoid it.
Geniuses remove it.                                          (Alan Perlis)
