I don't think that such a problem is so difficult to be fixed. I rather
think that UUNET (USA) DON'T CARE ABOUT THE INTERNET COMMUNITY. I was
expecting at least an answer (other that an automated one) from them.
Also, I agree that most of the sysadmins will never make a distinction
between UUNET USA and any other UUNET. If they'll decide to block some
e-mail traffic, they'll block *.uu.net and I don't think that you'll be
able to change their mind. Also, I bet that UUNET (USA) will not have
any e-mail filter before Y2K.
I think that if the European Internet community will have some anti-spam
policy (black hole will be fine), maybe then we'll be able to get rid of
spammers using relays in Spain or Korea or Mexico or UUNET (USA).
