Challenge/response filtering systems DO get false negatives

This is what you get if you use challenge/response that flails about and
hits a non-existent account on one of the domains I administer. As a side note, it seems wrong for an anti-spam vendor to function using affiliate advertising. These guys don't have a good reputation, anyways. So... Enjoy your spam, "Mark". Please don't ask me to "filter" it for you again.

Well, I have always wanted to reply to those challenges I get when a spammer uses my address just to show people how stupid this method is. I doubt I would do it because I would be helping a spammer, but its tempting.
