Dorian argued (effectively, IMHO) that this is no where near always the case.

Thanx, Paul. I do believe you qualify as a third party as well. :)

However, please note that at no time did I say Verio must stop filtering. At least I do not think I did. If I did, please forgive me, I should not have done so. In fact, I quite clearly stated: "I encourage Verio and Verio engineers to continue filtering if they so desire."

I did say their actions were opposite their words (they are), I mentioned that no other backbone (at least none I can find) filters like Verio does, and I noted some of the affects to smaller providers if all backbones filtered.

I also encouraged all other backbones to filter Verio as Verio filters them. But that is just a suggestion. Feel free to configure your routers (mail servers, etc.) as you please.
