Use results in their whitelists??? That would be foolish if true --
spammers reportedly are adopting SPF more readily than the rest of us. 

Heck, Hotmail uses SPF, but given that approximately 25% of my spam

mail is confirm that Microsoft has a problem keeping spammers from
registering with their service.
