Is SpamCop hosting the largest out of date cache of APNIC in the world?

Recommended Posts

Sorry for the silly title, but SpamCop is getting to be very unreliable when parsing spam for the APNIC region. Almost every one that I check manually has a different reporting address due to whois changes from months ago. Anything reported to this forum seems to be "resolved" by a hardwired snapshot of the reporting address, which will inevitably become out of date.

Yes, and in the interim a "refresh" may be forced by hitting the [refresh/show] link where it appears in the parse. But there is a problem with those lookups, no matter how they're refreshed.

For instance, as noted elsewhere, 202.191.128.0 - 202.191.255.255 -> SIFYNET-IN -> IRT-SIFYNET-IN -> abuse-mailbox: abuse[at]sifycorp.com

When the cache is refreshed the parser ignores that IRT contact but picks up the admin contact (admin-c: HS51-AP), and HS51-AP -> e-mail: ipadmin[at]sifycorp.com which seems to have learned to ignore SC reports and is now devnulled in the routing.
