>> Suresh, thanks for your interest. I see you've had a lot of experience in fighting spam, so you must have known this. Yes, I know this spamming technique has been around for a while. But it's surprising to see that the majority of the ISPs that we studied are still vulnerable to this attack.  That probably indicates that it is not as widely known as we would expect. So I thought it would be beneficial to raise the awareness of the problem.
