I found the advice rather naïve. Not bad, but also not very 
sophisticated, and I fear that extending it to be comprehensive will not 
produce a readable document.

Still, I can see value in a document whose abstract says "here are some 
of the bad things you must expect to receive, and not just from 
spammers". Is that the goal of your draft?
