One thing we should keep in mind when implementing anti-spam solutions is to not try to solve the problem like was done with news. Since people started rejecting massive cross-postings, the spammers just sent a new article to each of the groups. Most of the spam is binary pictures trying to attract people to their site, so the amount of news traffic skyrocketed with dozens of copies of the same stuff. Score: spammers 1 isps 0 I don't have a solution, but a wise man once said "don't try to squeeze water in your hands without freezing it first." -- Mickey Coggins Mobile: +41-79-210-3762 Technical Support Group Internet Prolink SA Tel: +41-22-788-8555 AG/BE/BS/GE/GR/SG/VD/ZH ICC - CP 1863 Fax: +41-22-788-8560 "Get connected today!"
