A quick rant.
I've found that a lot of the automatically generated emails (i.e. new member confirmations and PM notifications) were getting sent back to me. Well, I've found the Jeep Horizons domain has been listed as a spammer by http://www.dnsbl.us.sorbs.net/.
Their solution to get delisted? Pay a $50 "fine." Who does the "fine" go to? A paypal account for the Joey McNicol Legal Defense Fund or some hospital in Australia. Sound fair to you? It doesn't to me. And who is the owner of this sobrs.net? Some guy named Matthew Sullivan in Australia. Sound like a scam to you? It does to me.
I'm not going to pay some jackass half a world away $50 because he put us in a database.
Stay tuned. soapbox

That's funny. It's hardly spam considering in order to receive an automatic email, you had to have registered here in the first place.

I got a response from them. Their claim to fame is that some other website which has an IP close to ours and is on the same server is a spammer so every site on the server is supposedly getting listed on their database as a spammer. Rolling Eyes
