... and this one appears to have a terminal flaw. Using complaints without
verification to automatically list someone is a bad idea for *exactly* the
same reason that running an open relay is a bad idea - you are at the
mercy of good behaviour of third parties, and if they don't innocents
elsewhere suffer.

Or in other words, spamcop seems to be part of the problem, not part of
the solution.
