i think you're bring up irrelevancies.  the fact that company A is doing
wrong is not justification for company B doing the same.

this thread is not about what rackspace or anyone else is doing.  it's
about osirusoft blocking IADVANTAGE.

osirusoft's decision to block iadvantage seems to be perfectly

perhaps if iadvantage and other asian ISPs actually bothered responding
to spam complaints and taking action, they might get more favourable
treatment from anti-spam services.  in the absence of any response,
however, the appropriate course of action is to assume that they are
actively complicit in the spamming offences.

see above.  both telstra and ozemail regularly get blacklisted when they
deserve it.  why should iadvantage be immune just because they're asian
and they never bother responding to spam complaints?  should asian ISPs
be a special case, protected from the results of their own cluelessness
and/or greed, simply because some of the sysadmins don't speak english?
