Same issues (although smaller volume). My policy is real simple - report
the mailing as "spam" and I immediately unsubscribe the perp and ban him
from the mail server. The bounce refers to a web page with instructions on
how to apply for reinstatement after a year. Until then, they're off. I
run the lists as a service to them. I could not care less if they're
subscribers or not.
