I've got a real problem with people who make silly decisions about who
they'll accept mail from. Honestly, some of the RBLs (they weren't the
problem in this case) are as big an Internet pest as the spammers that
they try so hard to fight against.
Anyhow, what's the point in blocking all .ru email addresses? All .ru
hostnames would be *less* stupid.
It's hardly all in the spirit of international co-operation is it?
