Re: Spam. Again.. -- and blocking net blocks?
Ok on a serious note can we not try to solve the spam problem here? its a never ending loop (tech problem or social problem who cares.. its a problem and we all know it, be a good operator and kill anyone who wants to spam on your network). On a not-so-serious note maybe if we just assigned spammers 22.214.171.124/8 ip space the problem would take care of itself. -Scotty ----- Original Message ----- From: "hostmaster" <[email protected]> To: <[email protected]> Sent: Tuesday, December 10, 2002 1:00 PM Subject: Re: Spam.
