Why is the incoming Optusnet spam filter so useless, but the outgoing one so strict? Is this just to

Ok, Optus...had about enough of this one sided spam filtering...

See below is a message, addressed to my ****@optusnet.com.au email address, and the Optus system let it through to me with no issues, HOWEVER, when I try to forward it back to Optus SPAM (and ACMA spam), it is rejected as SPAM!

If your system can OBVIOUSLY detect it as SPAM when the message is outgoing, why can it NOT detect it incoming???

Is this just because Optus does not care about any incoming stuff...but relaying SPAM to other destinations might have legal implications, so it is much more strict?

I think this is almost time for the TIO (Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman) to start taking an interest in this.

C'mon Optus, UP YOUR GAME! Judging by the many posts (and little action) on this subject, its time something is done about this. NOW!
