       There's a problem with replying to a spammer; in that way you're
merely acknowledging that the e-address is valid.

       To my way of thinking, that's a bad thing to do; isn't it better to
ignore & hope the spammer will give up.

       Also, these spammers tend to use slightly different e-addresses in
order to fool the system, so rejecting one will not reject the next ones

Isn't that the same thing as emailing back saying reject?

Hi :)
I get the impression that if we do nothing then the message gets blocked.
So if you don't like a message or think it's spam then it's fine to leave

We are mainly trying to catch the ones that should not have been blocked
in order to unblock them.
Regard from
Tom :)

florian any chance you can black list this domain as this is the 3rd
today from the same company in the span of a few hrs to the mirrors
list i
have rejected them all but still its very annoying that they are still
pushing to spam the list.

let's not block individual domains. Usually, one blocks the sending
server's IP, not the sender domain.

Plus, moderation is all about spam filtering. Manually maintaining
filter lists is a tedious tasks I really would like to avoid, because
you have to regularly verify those lists (who can assure that the IP has
not changed the owner to a legitimate sender in the meantime?).

We do extensive spam filtering already with greylisting, blacklists,
SpamAssassin the the like. The spam that gets through is the tasks
moderators have to deal with.
