Mark,

All of my sources were routing through Telia, I had no idea that PCCW
was not accepting the tags. The null routes were set immediately once
this issue came to my attention and the server was powered down
immediately once I determined that PCCW was not accepting the discard
tags.

I've listened to and acted on every single Spamhaus listing since the
founding of this company and all of a sudden in late 2010 a couple of
pharmacy spammers pick up a dedicated server, thus warranting full
blown witch trials on our company.

I was very polite with Spamhaus at first but so far i've been treated
like garbage. You would be angry as well.
