Also saw it on (,4,16682,00.html).
What caught my eye was this bit at the bottom of the page:

		"The only thing that's going to turn us off is either a
		law or the antispammers finding a way to attack us to
		the ground," [Sanford] said. 

		Wallace added that if the network doesn't work, then
		he will officially throw in the towel. 

		"If this doesn't work, nothing will," he said. "If it
		doesn't go, then that's it for me--I'm done." 

Cool.  All we need to do is blackhole any routes to him for a little while
(the oh-so-familiar and oh-so-easy "y'can't get thar from heah"), and he's
given up.  woo-hoo!
