Verizon/UUNet drops off of Spamhaus top-ten list

I never dreamed I'd see this day, but Verizon/UUNet, former bane of the internet, has managed to get themselves removed from the Spamhaus Rokso top-10 list of worst service providers (currently in the #11 position.) It wasn't very long ago that they were in the #1 position (and had been for a decade) by a very wide margin.

Kudos to the abuse staff at Verizon, who did what no other abuse staff had ever done before — gotten UUNet under control.

Read Steve Linford's message about it in the net-abuse newsgroups.
