Spam. Again.. -- and blocking net blocks?

  • From: Mark Segal
  • Date: Tue Dec 10 10:04:18 2002

Before the flame begins..

I'm not sure when this started.. 

Background:
We have a downstream ISP, who hosts a website of questionable material.
This customer (of our customer) used a third party to spam on their behalf..
Which is a violation of our AUP.  (In fact we null0 the /32 in question).

Problem:
For some reason, spews has decided to now block one of our /19.. Ie no mail
server in the /19 can send mail.

Questions:
1) How do we smack some sense into spews?
2) Does anyone else see a HUGE problem with listing a /19 because there is
one /32 of a spam advertised website?  When did this start happening?

Regards,
Mark
