What's wrong with what Mat posted? The guy claiming DNS is regulated by 
federal law is an idiot. Not that I always agree with what Mat says, but 
the guy's claims are obviously and patently false. The claims, in fact, 
are so ridiculous that I tend to think he's making them to weasel out of 
solving the problem that got him listed in the first place. People doing 
that *deserve* to be publically ridiculed. 

When I talk to Mat I generally have no problems having a civil and 
productive discussion with him. But I don't start out with an attitude, 
and I don't cook up absurd stories to try to get out of fixing my spam 
problem. (Not that I have one, but if I did, I'd not try to weasel out of 
fixing it.)

YMMV; at $DAYJOB we don't seem to have the same problem.
