We are having this discussion over again, probably once a year - I do not
keep the exact count, but since the creation of this list I would say about
a dozen times.
We all have remained of the same opinion over the years.
For instance, I believe that it is a mistake to think that behind an
incorrect email address there is always a "bad guy", so there are fair
chances that by shooting before aiming you might think to protect potential
victims but in reality you create one victim more.
But I am sure that my post will be by and large irrelevant, because
everybody will remain of the same opinion.
