AlphaCentauri Posted April 18, 2004 Share Posted April 18, 2004 I like the Hall of Shame page. I would like to see some additional statistics (which I hope would encourage certain cable companies who recently got into broadband to feel challenged to get their spammers under control). I notice that when you look up some IP numbers in the blacklist -- like Comcast -- you see spam coming from the same source on and off for over a month, and numerous other chronic spam sources in the "neighborhood." Other times you look up a number and it may be listed, but for less than a week, and all the other sources in its neighborhood are also only operating for a brief period. Sometimes you even report a spam within a couple hours of receiving it and see a note when you go to confirm it that the ISP has already taken action against the spammer. Which ISP's are most responsive at shutting down spammers? Is there a way of rating the best and worst to encourage a little competition among them? That would seem more valid than how many spams come from one ISP, since the larger and faster growing ISP's will naturally be picking up more new spammers. You can't blame them for that as long as they shut them down as fast as possible once reported. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
