Heads-up: AT&T apparently going to whitelist-only inbound mail

I'm not sure whether shadenfreude is the right word, however, it seems that,
regarding a previous conversation about cutting off users infected with viruses,
ATT has decided that putting a bit of stick about is the right thing to do.

It will be very interesting to see how this works out, as it may set a very
big precedent.

I just hope that they do it subnet by subnet over time instead of all at once,
so that the interruption can be isolated brifly to small areas over a longer
period of time. I don't envy their customers, or their security department
for having to resort to this, but we should all be watching for the results,
as it may make or break the case for dealing with user sites that expose the
network to risk.
