Not quite.

Part A:
There are servers in the web who maintain lists of spammers. But anyone
can defame you there. And the maintainers do not care about complaints.
They do not take you out.

Part B:

Even institutions like German Landesregierungen use the lists of those
servers. Which means that you as an ordinary citizen want to use
electronic mail as a means of communication in legal affairs (as is wanted
by politics), your email will not get there.

Complaints at the Landesregierungen will be brushed off.

So, anyone who wants to do substantial damage to you, defames you at those
spammer list servers, and you cannot do anything against it.

I receive hundreds of spams per day. In bad times up to 1000. But none of
these spam mails is as bad as an important mail from me or to me which
does not get through.

People should realize that the anti-spam measures impose a potential
deadly threat. Imagine Emails concerning important medical matters. If
they do not get through, a person might die.

So, the paranoia against spam in several ways ends up in Nazi-dom. I do
not think that we need that again.

I will look what that is. Thank you.

It is not hours, its is days.

And there was not a single email bounce...
