Bugger, hit enter too soon.

1/ you run a network that has thousands of users, abc.com

2/ I have xyz.com, I choose to hardfail

3/ tj on (not my customer) fakes tj at xyz.com

4/ tj sends successfuly sends 5000 emails into abc.com

5/ my staff get bombarded with thousands of your users forwarding to
    abuse at xyz ... all because we said DROP EM but you decide to SCORE EM

6/ I instruct my staff to block  abc.com to abuse at xyz.com removing your
    ability to complain to us in the case of a genuine issue, you get 
frustrated at us for ignoreing you......and you'll wonder why :)
