Blue Security anti spam project

Blue Security is an Israeli anti spam project with a twist. Instead of simply blocking spam, they reportedly send an opt out email to the originator from each participating user for each spam received in an attempt to increase spammers overhead. We are concerned with the possibility of wrongly flooding an innocent third party’s server with opt out messages so we need to look into this further before implementing it…

Update: Apparently Blue Security users are being targeted by spammers. We tend to think this means the system is effective.
