I use lists. I find it useful for my "customers." I'm also pretty diligent
about tweaking the advertise regexps so company lists aren't published to
the outside world.  I do make who's private by default on my system too. 

It should be fairly easy to add a "shunning" feature to resend, it's
pretty close to the $opt_I code. Addresses that match regular expressions
in a config file get dropped, or the sender gets a bounce message "Your
address has been used for spamming, we will no longer distribute mail from
this address. If you feel that there has been an error, contact
