I will not have network resources I pay for, used to spam me, or to spam
others. I have the right of use and/or disposal of my own property. People
who spam are committing "theft of service" and my Ip reachability matrix is
better off without such people in it.

Oh, great. Next, the abortion foes will try to deny the advocates
access. Then, the gays versus the straights. The Jews and the
Gentiles. ...


Yep, I'm concerned. I find the precedent frightening and the use of
"public" resources to satisfy a "private" goal to also be frightening.
Even though the "private" goal is admirable.
