RE: spammers will move offshore?

I got my answer( they are) and it is done via a manual entry in the ORBS list. Now for the follow-up question, is anyone else, besides Telstra, serving OZ? AboveNet already confirmed that they aren't. If the answer to that is negative, then we ought to re-think the black-hole issue. Certainly, since my client is doing substantial traffic with OZ, I will recommend that they drop ORBS like a bad habit. It's impacting revenue. The latencies to OZ are bad enough, without having to deal with black-hole happy fanatics. SPAM is a side-issue here and not really relevent to losing connectivity with an entire continent.
