But consider the fact that: half the purpose of posting an ID is to get

of aggressive filtering in place that's blocking your receipt of the
verification messages then the chances are very very high that you'll
also block comments from some random person out there that happens to
look questionable to your companies blocking algorithms.

Given that 90-98% of email over the open Internet is spam, aggressive filtering at the receive side is the only thing that keeps email viable. The /quality/ of that filtering is the question, not whether to have it.
