Somehow I'm not at all surprised by your response. I guess all this SpamCop and especially the new mail hosts stuff is just not for really technical people. There's something very nonintuitive about it that seems to be perfectly OK with nontechnical people. I've been designing and writing software for 40 years and have been active in development of Internet software since the Internet became available to the public. I developed a Web server for a mainframe manufacturer, I run my own servers, etc., etc. If I have trouble understanding what SpamCop is doing and requesting of us, it's SpamCop's problem, not mine.
Your response helped me make my decision. I have better things to do. I won't be reporting spam to SpamCop anymore nor contributing any more money.
Have a nice life.
