They do send e-mail to the people they blacklist. I read the postmaster
and sometimes the abuse mailbox at an ISP, and I see lots of notices
from spamcop.

Now I do agree that if you use the spamcop RBL to plainly reject
mail, that is probably too much since you can get into spamcop
way too easily. I'd recommend that to noone. But for a few
spamassassin scoring points, it's just fine.
