My own feeling about using anti-spam measures that actively annoy people, as well as the spam issue in general, is that it's not a big enough issue to take such measures. If you take reasonable precautions with your email address and use spam filtering, what gets through is not nearly as annoying as people telephoning your home selling credit card offers. Just delete it, and move on. Those who complain of getting thousands of spams a day should figure out what they may have done to encourage such a situation, learn from their mistakes, and swallow the inconvenience of getting a new email address.
