That's why I post usenet from  I was doing
this way before dcc though.  I have my smtp server (Obtuse + local
hacks) hooked so that mail to automatically
blacklists the From_, stopping spam to legitmate users.  I don't have
it hooked into dcc(proc) right now and it's usefulness in blocking
From_ is diminishing as spammers randomize their From_s.

There is also the occaisional reading impared user that does not read
the blurb at the end of the message telling them not to respond by
e-mail, or to response to "brian at intelrinx dot bc dot ca" if they
want to e-mail.
