louisd Posted February 6, 2004 Share Posted February 6, 2004 As a spamcop e-mail user and a long time spamcop reporter I have to reopen the conversation questioning the wisdom of mole reporting. I use spamcop for a number of reasons including: I got tired of manually tracking and reporting all my spam in order to: 1) Help legitimate ISPs quickly knock spammers off their network 2) Get ISPs not willing to solve the spam problem on the BL. It seems to me that mole reporting kills #1 completely. Systems are being blocked on mole reports alone, preventing the ISP from taking any real action until they find out they're blocked. How much extra time does this allow the spammers to exploit whatever hole they've found? How many thousands of extra mail pieces does this allow them to send? It seems to me that ISPs should not be blocked without at least being notified that there's a problem. Can't get rid of mole reporting? Then at least don't allow mole reports alone to cause an IP to be blocked. Just my humble opinion. --Louis Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
