Tactera added to SpamHaus

Here's one for the record books — or the patent office anyway. Long-time snowshoe spammer Tactera has finally been added to the Spamhaus Registry Of Known Spamming Operations (ROKSO). Because you need to be kicked off by three internet providers to join ROKSO, and Tactera usually operates under assumed names, it took a long time for them to qualify.

Why do I mention the patent office? Because in reading the ROKSO record, I was surprised to see that Tactera actually has a U.S. patent on showshoe spamming: 7,594,035
