SpamSpam Posted April 18, 2016 Share Posted April 18, 2016 Multi-part question: 1. Why is it worthwhile to a SpamCop user to submit reports of already SpamCop-blacklisted IP addresses? Examples of what the SCBL may show about an IP address, "Causes of listing > SpamCop users have reported system as a source of spam about 10 times in the past week", why is me reporting it one more time going to change me getting spam when it's already blacklisted and one more report does nothing to curtail persistant spamming IP networks? I've seen up to "70 times"; how many reports of spamming are needed, rhetorical? I consider it pointless to me as a spam recipient to submit a report to certain networks that do nothing to overall diminish their spamming? "Listing History > ...it has been listed ... a total of 67 days". Me reporting it one more time is very unlikely to change the spam from this spamming IP address [i have my own Idea of what a spamming network is and me reporting to such a network operator does nothing nothing to overall diminish their spamming). Right now, it seems pointless to me to display such stats to SpamCop reporters. These numbers give no context of what a number of spam reports and number of spamming days is categorized as (is 7 days of spamming "high"? Is 14 days high? Is 67 days high? Or, is 67 days or 70 SpamCop user reports a "critical" amount--Senderbase uses the verbage of 30-day period of "medium", "very high", or "critical" rating)? 2. As a followup, and what I've been investigating to perhaps only report not-already-SpamCop-blacklisted IP addresses is: Is there a way to run the SC Blacklist through a filter in a desktop (non-mailserver) implementation of Thunderbird? The closest I've found so far is: 1. SpamPal; which supposedly requires additional software for use with web-based email accounts (I tried SpamPal and couldn't get it to filter my web-based email; but didn't try installing the supposedly required additional software to get it to work with "non-standards-based" web-based accounts); 2. SpamAssassin for Windows (which didn't install on my medium-old version of Windows; and, I don't wish to keep installing tons of additional scripting and Windows packs to get it to work on my production desktop.
