[PLUG-TALK] Is it just me, or...

has http://ipmasq.cjb.net ceased to be about ip masquerading.  
I've been getting nasty ads presumably from whoever took that 
domain over where they are very hard to stop because they are 
coming in from nonexistent, or at least non resolvable sources.  
I checked through other sites to see if something had happened 
to mine so far getting the same result.

What I need is a firewall that blocks anyone trying to
smtp me until a lookup can be done on the address a connection 
attempt is being made from to determine that that address is 
registered somewhere.  It won't stop everything, but at 
least I won't have to deal with email that comes from 
completely unregistered sources.  Anyone who wants or needs 
to contact me can use a registered email address.

I guess there's a time for spamassasin, but I don't want
to let spammers connect at all even if it means blocking
hundreds of ip addresses.  Any spammer who connects has 
won and will continue to send me trash even if their 
stuff is being thrown away.
