You've misunderstood, and Ben's comments are correct.

Mail that is effectively noise will be either blacklisted (dropped) or
spamlisted (reported to several abuse contacts).  Depends on whether or
not it's simply annoying, or bulk and unsolicited.

I have no control other than limited powers of persuasion or suggestion
for how linux-elitists is goverened.

I would suggest that Don revisit his list of legal MTAs, however.
