If I have to double-check, what's the point of it? Seriously! How
different is that than just hitting delete on the way through reading

That's my one, and only, anti-spam handler that I've used for the last
several years. This mailing list gets a special address. And, for what
it's worth, it's not just an anti-spam measure. I really do not desire
private messages from strangers. The warning is upfront about it.
My personal mail, which I think I've had for several years after getting
my own domain has no anti-spam handling, and needs none. And I have
another address that I have used on mailing lists, and that does get
spam, hence why I joined this list differently. But after taking these
measures, I only get about one spam a day.
On the other hand, if I used a spamable address on this mailing list, I
would need to use anti-spam software. And every anti-spam solution that
I've ever tried I consider to be utter crap and a pain to have to
constantly manage. It's *never* set and forget.

All mail to my mailbox is automatically deleted, there is no point
trying to privately email me, I will only read messages posted to the
