Unfortunately, spamguard and osirusoft both appear to pickup the
spews.org blacklist, which claims to be only for their (the creators of
of it) personal use with caveats about anyone else using it. Therefore,
by your statement above (which I agree with 100%) neither spamguard or
osirusoft should be used commerically (but, of course, are).

Yep, as I have stated before, SPAM is a significant nuisance and a
complete waste of bandwidth; but for me, blocking my email arbitrarily
(which is what I feel spews has done) is a DoS, and bothers me much
