Feigning normality since 1973

Ultimate Blacklist!

Filed in: Spam.

Via Aardvark:

Aunty Spam's Net Patrol reports: A little birdie with insider knowledge has confirmed that Verizon is blocking all international IP space from RIPE, APNIC, and more, and is only unblocking specific domains, based on their IP address, when complaints are made and escalated.

If that's true, then it seems Verizon has stumbled on an interesting solution to the spam problem, though probably not a sustainable one over the long term, due to the amount of complaints they'll get (though they may well be blocking the complaints as well!).
