Is it no longer beneficial to report spam?


Recommended Posts

I've been faithfully reporting spam for years,

but now it seems like any and all spam coming through is either Chinese, or drops into a Devnull spamcop address

. . . goes nowhere. A percentage used to go to CloudFlare, but even they have stopped coming.

Is it no longer beneficial to report if it just goes to a devnull address @ Spamcop.

Cloudfare are webhosts you need to lookup a registrar!
Windows whois for Registrars here
All Chinese email spams are only acted on by sending here (not websites)
Send as attachment put/paste sending IP in "Subject" and body to 

post all from YOUR email account

Once you send a message to a devnull address, it feeds the blocking list. If they ignore the spam, then their IP gets put a block list and they cannot send spam.

There was an issue some time back where a lot of people stopped using the block list, but I am not sure if they went back to using it again.
