Spamcop madness

FYI,

Spamcom-madness.  This example clearly showes the dangers of clueless users
using something like spamcop.  I'm glad it was not the RBL.  In this case, we
have been harrassed for a couple of weeks by someone spoofing one of our
ipaddresses in spams.  The text in this mail is what the
"abuse-responder-on-duty" send back to the complainer, explaining we could not
help him and why.  Next thing I know, I get another spamcop report, saying the
friendly reply is a spam!.
