No, I don't agree at all, I never said that and I don't like you
putting words into my mouth.
A tool does not have to completely solve a problem in order for it to
be useful. DKIM and SSP help solve domain forgery problems. This is
a problem made worse by spam and phishing. DKIM, by it self, seems to
only really solve the "who can I blame for sending/relaying this
spam?" problem, something which is already fairly well solved.
Without SSP, I really don't see any use in DKIM at all.
