You mentioned spam-checking and so it seems you somewhat equate SPF
with anti-spam, to some degree. It seemed like, anyway - ICBW, etc.
If SPF isn't to prevent spam, what's the point of it? It's also
useless at preventing joe-job back-scatter too - there are *much*
better, unilaterally-deployable solutions that don't require
upgrading the internet to be 100% effective.
SPF is the internet equivalent of phrenology - I'm amazed there are
still people advising others to feel for bumps. ;)
