Never received bounce spam aka backscatter spam? Remember that time

No question, I've definitely received it. Just as I've received phone calls from victims of phone-spam with same-prefix caller-ID spoofing (given that I know for a fact that there is nobody with the same prefix as my cell phone who has any business calling me on it, I treat all calls with my own prefix as either phone spam or attempts to call a spammer who spoofed my number).

But even when I had an ISP whose server-side spam filter allowed bouncing as an option, I used that option only when it was obvious the sender address was not spoofed.
