cross posting our posts to lists which we, or at least, I, are not a
member of?
 I think that completely sums up who and what you are.

How old are you? 16?
You clearly have NO idea, run along now lil boy and manage your tiny
SOHO box.

oh but as a parting shot, with all that mail we get, little spam, scams
or viruses gets to our users, that says we are doing something right,
and it hasn't been since around 2004 that we had any particular smtp
server in an DNSBL, and then it was only one of a dozen (0 day virus
infected windows weenie) , and although I was  once a member of the
"inner boys club" being spam-l,  Jerr'ys comment and my agreeance are
even more applicable to them, it totally amazes me how many SA's get
away with this 'self justification' of their employment, again., if only
their employers really knew.
