It also people like me have to deal with your bounce messages,
when the spammers fake my address as the sender. That is currently the
largest source of junk that I get. They seem to not use the guys who
don't include the original message in the bounce as much, though I still
get quite a number of faked bounces and vacation messages.
As one example, spamcop.net now considers those bad bounces as
spam, and will send reports to your upstream provider.
A better solution would be to bounce them earlier. I haven't
tried to bounce based on From address, since that is so easy to change,
but I imagine it should be possible.
