	I've found that a number of people that are spamcop subscribers
report messages as spam that are not when they don't know how to
get removed from lists.

	I find this annoying and always make a note in the spamcop
ticket saying they're fools when this happens.

	I do wish that would get a different dns naming
system set up (ala comcast, using or similar subdomain
that does not have MX records to help with the direct-to-server SMTP
problem I have with with spam..)
