Re: Idiot spammer Re: The Site

I remember looking up one of the spammers' IPs on SpamCop, and it stated
that the address was not marked as spamming due to a lack of reports.
Reporting it required registration, however.  I wonder if someone on this
list is registered with them and whether they could report the spams that
get through the filters -- AFAIU, the reported addresses get blocked
fairly aggressively.
