McColo: Major Source of Online Scams and Spams Knocked Offline

p.s. McColo's upstream providers are completely within their rights to
terminate connectivity if they feel that they have violated their
contractual terms of service.

Indeed. I also want to nominate fergdawg for the NANOG Order of Merit
for getting the phrase "purge the badness" into the LA Times.

  "People thought the first community-source effort was a fluke,"
  Ferguson said. "Now they see with McColo, it's not a fluke. The
  community can police its own backyard and purge the badness."



PS Spam counts on my own incoming mail are down about 70%
right now. Enjoy the moment while we can ...
