Yeahbut the only blocklist I know of that is blocking all of Sprintlink 
is spambag. And again, folks... we're discussing SPEWS here, not spambag.
And yes, spambag is an extremely aggressive list that its homepage 
specifically *states* is a personal blacklist. If you're foolish enough to
use an overly aggressive blacklist that was never intended for public use, 
sorry, but you don't *deserve* to talk to half the Internet.

Is SPEWS blocking all of Sprint? All of ANY large provider, for 
that matter?
