from what I understand the guy who created spews got dos attacked (they assume it was from spammers) so the guy that created spews quit. He then decided to blacklist everything in the world. Which seems to be working very well.

Yeah, everyone should update to the latest release of mailscanner.

It looks like the spammers one with this fiasco.. no more spews and with the "hell" this mess is creating by a giant deny all instead of allow all its only going to cause people to hate this method of protection.

oh well.. i guess we can say "it was nice while it lasted!"

it was a pain in the ass while it lasted.
Getting your IP blacklisted for something another server on the same ip range did is not good.
Im glad to see it shut down.

Just posted on SlashDot, more DOS's going on right now. I've noticed an increase on SoBigs in the last hour as well, anyone else?

All it took was a bit of TLC to stay out of there.

How could anyone possibly be happy the "system is wide open".

Nobody except spammers, but They had a nasty habit of blocking entire class C's. I got bit by them once. It's no fun and not fair to be "collateral damage" as spews liked to put it. No amount of TLC can protect you from the actions of others on your IP range.
