Sure. I'll enforce the policy. You fool around on my system and I block your
domain. That seems simple.

You've already been told by half a dozen people that to use their resources
for other than the stated intentions (e.g. joining a list on yodeling to
discuss yodeling -- NOT to examine headers) is a violation of trust. How
violations of trust per day do you expect to be permitted?

Thanks, got that now. What I'm wondering is, "is there any way
to enforce this policy?" My half baked idea being rejected,
anybody else want to anty up?
