UUNET (Anti-spam Working Group)

I guess noone really has an interest in putting someone else against
the wall, but please understand that UUNET Europe will have no better
reputation than UUNET US unless you take more action than they do.

Sometime in the future the zillion of * dialup spammers that
are allowed to continue regardless of the amount of protest mail to
spam-complaint@localhost will lead to some kind of blockade that will
affekt * world wide. To date I've received a lot of nice auto-
generated replies from UUNET <spam-complaint> but still I have not
heard of one single case where a UUNET spammer's account has closed.

I'm no great fan of MAPS RBL but at times I admit to understanding
why some people like it.
