having once upon a time maintained such a list, and having been accused by
a lot of people, sometimes in court papers, of abusing my "powers", i agree
that proof ought to be available.  spamhaus does a fine job at this, from my
experience thus far.  the thing i like about SH-DROP is that it includes all
of the russian business network, and it's very short, and changes very slowly.
