Please save spam reports for legitimate spam, rather than using it to reprimand
people who don't run their systems the way you think they should be run.
There are arguments pro and con about when to send bounces, and some
might not agree with your assessment.
If spamcop is filled with reports of legitimate systems that are trying
their best to run their systems right, then the whole system is undermined.
This is akin to a policeman issuing tickets to people wearing beards,
just because he doesn't like beards. He's using his power to
advance his own personal agenda: it undermines people's sense
When I have to explain to one of my users why they can't receive
email from a particular correspondent, I need that sense of justice:
I must have faith that their correspondent (or at least his/her server) was truly a spammer.
