Okay, so, I agree that SpamCop and its users are boneheads, *but* the
problem lies in the definition of "spam source". Debian allows spam through,
so is participating to a certain extent, by not doing a good enough job of
stopping spam. My LUG list also lets spam through occasionally, even though
we use James Henstridge's SA plugin for Mailman. It's not a closed list.

Boneheads win. And so does my random sig.
