So why are you posting from an Exodus address, presumably in an
official capacity?  As Hansen pointed out, Exodus is no stranger to
the NANAE community.  It's about time to stop making excuses, and
start taking action.

Then the burden should be on the customer to prove they're running a
legitimate opt-in newsletter service; most *reputable* ones keep
detailed logs of http/mail headers of subscribers opting in.  If they
can't produce, punt them...

Mind you, I'm not a big SPEWS fan, but you haven't provided me with
any compelling evidence to prove they were unjust in blackholing you.
