Tactera vs MAAWG

The other day, I wrote about Tactera, the snowshoe spammer which had finally earned its place in the Spamhaus ROKSO list. More stories about Tactera have been brought to my attention recently. Today's interesting tidbit is that on their "about us" page, Tactera strongly tries to imply that they are members of the Messaging Anti-Abuse Working Group (MAAWG) and the Email Sender & Provider Coalition (ESPC).

A little checking has shown that Tactera is a member of neither group. You can read a little more about it in this usenet post. It should be interesting to see what happens when MAAWG's lawyers see this.
