Keeping track of those rascal spammers.
I've gotten a few emails curious about the MySQL output I sometimes refer to in posts. I just finished blowing the dust off a paper I wrote several months ago, documenting some of the antispam measures I've developed. I added some info about how I use a database to store historical info. It's been an invaluable tool not only for presenting clear evidence of abuse, but for efficiently maintaining access lists, as well. The paper is at http://www.snark.net/snarkspam.html It's not the most polished document, as its main purpose was for me to document the system for myself, but I hope it can provide some hints or techniques for other folks to deal with the spam problem.

I'd very much be interrested in what you have setup to allow you to do this... I'm using MySQL with my IDS but having spam attempts as well would be very helpful...
