Yes, and for instance in the case of email it translates into something dead simple and sane implemented by most networks: no random luser granted permission to send any significant volume of email unless explicitly allowed.

They are not luzers, they are users. Their job is to educate/learn and or preform research.
The reason for oxford IT staff and IT infrastructure including mail servers to exist is so the people you call luzers can spend their time doing more productive things.
Spam/phishing/viruses are IT problems, any solution that relies on end users to be "educated" will fail.

... and surely this requires permission to send hundreds of email per minute continuously and access all kinds of sensitive IT resources?
I'll stop because it looks like you just stopped the left side of your brain as soon as you read "luser" and let the offended right side provide a recorded answer.
