When I introduced greylisting here it cut the spam down by 97%.
Unfortunately I have a number of users who started complaining about the
delay and that killed the project.

After reading your post I'm thinking about the possibility of that sort
of opt-in system. Thanks for that.

Found a classic yesterday at home (where I do have greylisting) - Amazon
tried 53 connects in <30 minutes. How broken is that?!?!
