Can we have a Great Firewall of Western Europe, please? Just block out 
the rest of the world... :)

But seriously, someone keeps using my .uk as the return address for 
their spam attacks. They're basically picking a random username and 
tacking on my domain, thus any bounces go to me. The bounce bounces, 
then the other (stupid) mailserver bounces the bounceback back to me at 
'postmaster'. RFC Non-compliant? You betcha. The worst offenders? 
Lotus/IBM and Microsoft Exchange Server.

Calling this annoying doesn't really give the full picture. Imagine 
having your postbox stuffed with about two thousand (minimum!) 
envelopes. Now try and find your {credit card bill, bank statement, gas 
bill} in that. Enjoy!
