Can someone please put a page on the Wiki about why bouncing spam is a
bad idea and is not the solution to their problem when they are getting
a few false alarms from the spam filters. What are the better solutions
to this problem, when they think a few of their customers' emails are
being flagged as spam?

Thanks folks. I've got a particularly awkward case at the moment, and I
really don't have the energy to go through the whole thing yet again.
