I get my "sneaky" kicks out of looking like an open relay when I'm
not. Letting their test message go through (there's an analogous thing you
can do for a proxypot) is _very_ sneaky. They think they're taking
advantage of a fool that is still running an open relay. Turns out they're
the fools: they're sending spam to a spam sink. For proxypots in
particular many do it from their own IPs. Boom! There went their anonymity.
