Yup. Spammers ruin it for everyone, and the large ISPs have to be hypersensitive to maintain their public image of being “family safe” or whatever (although that’s B.S., to be frank).
As long as people buy stuff or sign-up for stuff from spam, it will never go away. Since email effectively costs nothing, spammers can send out millions of emails. It only takes a handful of suckers to make their racket worthwhile.
It is for that reason that I think there should be a system employed where it costs a tiny amount of money to send email (1 cent perhaps). The fee is then waived if the email is “accepted” by the recipient. If the email is marked as “not accepted”, the sender must pay. Any fees collected are shared by the intended recipient and the organizations that manage the system (to pay for its administration). Spammers would end up paying a fortune, and spam would probably become less viable.
