In Spamcop's defence, it seems that their systems were never designed
to handle the wide variety of 'attack vectors" that spam uses today.
I would agree with your analogy if Spamcop limited automatic reporting
to subset of the community. The problem is they do not.
Spamcop also operates on the assumption that the user is exercising
some judgement when *directly* reporting spam, which is universally
the case with mailing list traffic. No matter how foolproof your
system, the world creates a better fool.
Thankfully, all my interactions - as a web host, network operator,
and mailing list manager- with Spamcop and their staff have been
professional, and productive. I for one appreciate the "just the
facts" style of reporting, and useful mechanisms for interacting with
the complainers. It is a refreshing change from the usual ALL-CAPS
threats and exclamation point filled diatribes, usually mailed to the
wrong abuse@* addresses.
