Something that ISPs should be aware of:

Enabling DEFANG_WEBBUGS globally will very likely also kill stationery
images for those users who go in for that sort of eye candy. You may
wish to consider some sort of opt-out processing for web bugs, so that
your customers can provide a list of correspondents for which
DEFANG_WEBBUGS will be disabled so that stationery will work.

  In 1998 more than three times as many people in the US were killed
  by incompetent physicians than were killed by handguns, yet the
  President of the A.M.A. is adopting "gun safety" as his platform.
