  1. The Preferences says: So -- the real point of reporting is to inform the blocklist process, right? I realize reporting doesn't reduce spam and in actual experience reporting usually validates the reporting email and produces a flood of more spam at first. But eventually my ISP, which uses the Spamcop blocklist, starts accumulating the spam (e.g. from "" to, automatically forwarded to my ISP) And the spam ends up in my ISP's graymail folder. So seems to me that's the point of using the "mole" approach -- not validating the email address being used to report the spam, but still informing the blocklist. Or rather informing the "SpamCop administrators" who presumably are updating the blocking list -- aren't they? Is there still someone doing that, and is this how it's being done? Can anyone clarify why Spamcop calls the "mole" reporting "mostly pointless" in the Preferences explanation of that option? What's not the point here about this?
