Wanna don't

I wish I could take credit for this headline, but it's courtesy of fellow spam-fighter Neil Schwartzman, who reports that Hotmail seems to have blocked *all* email from perennial European spamhaus Wanadoo.

Perhaps not as exciting as the time that Netcom blocked itself, but it's interesting to see an entire major ISP blocked by another for spamming.

Although Wanadoo never managed to get themselves indexed in my spam tracking page, they have managed to be a chronic low-level source of spam on the internet for nearly a decade. A quick look at shows wanadoo-sourced spam as recently as today.
