Good idea having a moderator. There are a number of different perspectives
for approaching this issue. There are those of us who are strongly against
filtering but also strongly opposed to spam as well.
I also like the idea of an open discussion. I would also be more than
willing to share our approach and the reasons we made the choices we did. I
am sure that many here feel the same.
In addition, it might be a good idea to bring examples such as the relevant
configs for your MTA.
