You're right. We all have different roles, so we all have to develop different 
strategies. If you maintain a mail server for a large university, or an ISP, 
you will undoubtedly have faculty or clients from all over the world. Believe 
me, I have wished that I could block entire domain extensions, but some of my 
clients would take this personally. Thats what happens when legitimate 
traffic gets blocked and thats why this thread started (mail1.giac.net 
spamcop listed). So why complain about a single legitimate IP address getting 
on a blacklist and advocate blocking millions legitimate IP addresses in the 
same thread?
