About a year ago, I asked Vixie if he would RBL porn sites. I might have
supported the RBL if there were a moral high ground. He said no.
P.S. Barry, I do feel sorry for you. Perhaps you should just refuse spam
complaints, and try to get them to stop using your domains. Instead of
stealing a domain, all the spammers need to do is change their addresses to
uucp style addresses, and their mail will likely be accepted, and bounces
shouldn't leave the system.
