The problem is that you'll catch things that are actually email that
the user ostensibly requested, from the original source, no matter

I find the vast majority of my spam shows up from web spiders
harvesting mailing list archives online that do not munge email
addresses and GNATs bug databases, which may be a better
clean-room way to put email addresses Out There.
