You're not punishing these other users -- AOL and the other clueless 
users are.  If AOL didn't shoot first and ask questions later, then 
these problems wouldn't exist.

There's not much you can do in this case.  All you can hope to 
reasonably do is to protect all your other users from what may happen 
with any AOL-related addresses.

By the way, these measures were enacted *after* I left.  If I had 
still been there, I assure you that things would be different.
