Complaint of the week: Ebay abuse mail (slightly OT)

Speaking on Deep Background, the Press Secretary whispered:

Having an abuse@ email address may be customary Internet behavior but it
is no longer reasonable. The fact is that SMTP email has outlived its
usefulness and needs to be replaced with something that provides a chain
of authentication that certifies the sender's identity.

Will eBay do business with me if THEY have to type in a 1" square
on MY webform?
