I will quit this thread gracefully after this post. Got to let the thread
dies sometime :)
To rephrase the discussion in a different way, I find this block dynamic
attitude annoying for one prime reason. There are cartloads of technical,
(both theoretical and actual), reasons why one should not run a MTA from a
dynamic IP address. Although, most of these reasons never cause a problem
in real life. However, not one person who has ever brought this subject up
so far has ever argued on the basis of a valid *technical* reason for
blocking dynamics, other than the probability of spew being greater from
dynamics. That is technically a reason, not a valid technical reason.
That is the specific reason why I still class this attitude as laziness.
Their is only one person on this list who I know could make me cowtow to
the technical aspect of this argument. No one else has ever brought it up
