How would the user ever prove that? Our Barlaeus site is refusing mail 
from *so* many sites world wide (that's the beauty of my Postfix cidr 
block method of refusing messages, I get to see to whom the mail is 
addressed before the MTA puts its foot down) from cracked home Windows 
PCs of our *own* people (I can see that by the RCPT TO: envelope 
recipient) that I'm amazed.

The only worthwhile tax incentive would be for using another OS than 
Windows (*any* other) and the US government would never do that, guess 
why ...
