Re: Malicious blacklisting is never acceptable
Hello idiot,

From the graphic posted above, it looks like Spamhaus contacted them over 80 times about the problem but were ignored, and THEN they were listed.

Spamhaus is not an American company and not subject to "Amerincan legal actaion".

Spamhaus does block millions of botnet IPs with their XBL, and blocks their command & control servers with it's BGPf list.

Your post is a complete waste of time, because you don't bother to educate yourself before running your mouth.  It's embarassing.

Malicious blacklisting is never acceptable
So thousands of innocent victims suffered collateral damage for an unspecific length of time, in what appears to be a completely unnecessary act.

That the company quickly repsonded proves that if Spamhaus had actually contacted them about the problem, it would have been solved - as indeed it was.

When's the last time a chinese company had success in legal actaion in Amerincan courts against an American company?

Of course they didn't react - they know full well that the corruption of the US legal system and anti-china bias in their Juries would have been a total time and moneywaster.

Spamhaus is basically a complete waste of time.  Almost all spam is sent via botnets, which Spamhaus can't stop, so the only good they serve is to perpetuate the extortion of money by whitelist providers and blacklist consumers, on the back of providing an increasingly irrelevant and alarmingly cavileer and dangers blocking service.

What is more important to you: skipping the occasional junk message, or not having your important emails trashed by over zealous operators using collateral damage extortion techniques to further their agenda?
