The point here, I think, that we are failing to see is that the
remailers are run on private machines and bandwidth, when you use a
remailer you are a guest on someone else property, your mail is using
their bandwidth etc.
They can determine how they like how they are used, I just hope most
of us will have the strength of conscience to refrain from using
remailers which censor or restrict their throughput, I agree that
spam is a different question but we do have our own way of dealing
with this, just mailbomb the senders, if they are commercial they are
likely to leave an address or telephone number on the spam even if
the email address is anonymized, we have ways ;-) <haha evil nazi
grin forms on face>
