You should follow nanae more often on usenet and you will know that
`spammers' mostly moved away from a2000.nl/chello.nl thanks to Marcel
his actions. And you don't clean a network with over 300k of customers
overnight, but even SPEWS is seeing changes.

Also another thing, if I may believe statistics from people running
spamikaze[1] is the US currently nummero uno in there blacklists counted
by blocked IP-address. Even .tw, .cn and .kr are just minor issues
compared to the US.

Maybe also nice to know is that there is a foundation[2] in the
Netherlands that fights against Dutch-companies that send people bulk
e-mail to addresses that are not collected with confirmed opt-in.

So you may need to rethink your opion about the Netherland and spam,
because a lot has changed or is changing or is based on fiction.
