This is rather ammusing, as the system that delivers mail from
vger to *.com *.org and *.edu is hosted at above.net. I too
think that ORBS and most of the other black list solutions are
evil, but are they more or less evil than spam? It's just like
last year's black list argument on l-k about blocking dialup
pools, is the inconvenience worth it? I for one think it is.
