I am running spamassassin and using sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org and they to
stop a lot of SPAM but I am still getting way more then I can stand.
What are people doing to stop SPAM? I do not want to run a program that
needs constant attention from me to keep it up to date and working.

There seems to be a lot of IP's and server networks that are dumping a
lot of SPAM on to the Internet but the block lists are not identifying
as SPAM'ers. I tried to find some way to submit offending IP addresses
to SPAMhaus.org but I could not find any way. Perhaps you can only
submit offending IP's if you are subscribed to a paid service of

Is there a community driven SPAM block listing service? Queries to
SPAMhaus.org automatically include other block lists but they all seem
to not let the public submit offending IP's either.
