How does refusing service to known spammers/spam operations make you
any less of a legitimate U.S. corporation?  How come all of the
resources mentioned in this thread are still online?

I do not assume your company is bad.  I assume that trying to get
anything shut down at BL is a waste of my time.  A majority of the
people posting on this thread seem to also attest to this point.

Just because you're proxying to other networks does not make you
unresponsible for their activity.

I am not under anyone's protection.  DroneBL is, but I no longer
operate it due to it being a timesink.  Nor should my opinions reflect
them in any way.  I just wanted to make it clear that I am aware of
what it is like to be under permanent DDoS attack.
