I still think real postage of a form (I mean $$$) could do it but I'm
sick of wearing out keyboards explaining why and seeing others wearing
out their keyboards trying to rationalize why it won't.

But, in a sentence, creating an economy around spam-fighting, an
economic incentive to fight fraud, would help because money focuses
the mind.
