The anti-spam extremists will say that it's a way for ISPs to pass the
complaints on to their spammy customers so they can remove annoying
whiny users from their spam lists while still spamming everyone else.
Personally, I'll wait and see whether it works or not before I condemn

I am a bit dubious, however, about how they tell the difference between
spam and legitimate commercial mail.  Cos there's an awful lot of spam I
get which comes from supposedly-legit companies.
