The ISPs will be a part of the solution. However, ISPs fall into two major categories: 1) The ones that read the types of lists that you posted this to 2) The ones that have the problem. You're preaching to the choir, Gadi - and if there's *one* thing I'd like a solution for, it's *that* problem. How do you get the unwashed masses of ISPs to join the choir so you can preach to them?
