RE: How do you get off ORBS nowadays?

This 'opt in' emailing (Yes, I asked for it myself) doesn't contain an 'opt
out' formula and is therefore a very illegal practice, no?

More illegal than 'opt out' spam if you ask me.

Anyway: the amount of bulk email distributed into my emailbox from
ANTI-SPAM-L gets rather unmanageable.

So, either continue discussing interesting means to create false-positive
'SPAM' diagnosis on your overconfigured mailservers in another place or
REMOVE me from this mailing list. I thought this was an official RIPE list
containing minutes and agendae for formal meetings, but it now is becoming a
chitter-chat-place for issues above.

can anyone help me by providing some reference to how to unsubscribe? Is
this a majordomo sys? Reactions please to cobben@localhost .

Because he found himself with his connection flooded by DNS queries after ORBS was disconnected, and wants to recover his bandwidth. I am not defending his choices, just reporting what he said. There is probably an announcement by him (Ron Guilmette) on (and other antispam forums such as SPAM-L). The other sites running the secondaries are probably not so concerned about the extra bandwidth. furio ercolessi Spin
