Received some spam today - well not actually it was blocked and dropped on the floor like a rock but it came from 216.96.39.144 which has a very interesting reverse dns:

canonical name spam.complaints.(888)292-3827.alltel.senior.support.ticket#2-940727661.

addresses 216.96.39.144

I say rule #3 in all its glory

Wow! How do you shoehorn a name like that into a PTR record? It's a pretty big block, too (and, yes, seems to be in Allnet / Windstream space):

rconner$ whois 216.96.39.144
Windstream Communications Inc WINDSTREAM (NET-216-96-0-0-1)
								  216.96.0.0 - 216.96.127.255
Nautilus Commercial Data Systems NAUTILUSDATA (NET-216-96-36-0-1)
								  216.96.36.0 - 216.96.40.255
