it already has, bernie.

One requires
the removal info in the header, another requires it in the footer, another requires the "List-*" headers another forbids it, one blocks all messages that are "Precedence: bulk" another requires that all mailing lists use "Precedence:
bulk", and so it goes... sigh...  What a wonderful world it will be....


Already is. But you forget one thing. If you're too small to bother with, you can set requirements like that, and everyone will ignore you and you'll find yourself on the out and ignored... What some of these fiefdoms don't seem to understand is they're not worth the bother trying to cooperate with or convince...

But if you're big enough, you can make others say "how high".
