Spamhaus provides a very helpful and intelligent service in a very unprofessional manner. I’m all for what they do, and certainly tempers are going to be set off when businesses attempting to be legitimate are hit with these accusations, but the proper thing to do is show your hand, and not flaunt the company’s conerns for everyone to see.

I think Cyberbunker is not based in Germany. It’s in Kloetinge, the Netherlands. It’s one of the coolest (literally) and most technologically advanced data centers in the world.

One of Cyberbunker’s most notable facilities is its indoor swimming pool . This is where its employees can rest and relax after a long days work. It’s also one of the few data centers that has the capability to shield almost all types of Electromagnetic Pulses.

Spamhaus seems to be acting quite reasonably in this case, and certainly within their published terms and policies. But that doesn’t matter anway. The entire reason that Spamhaus has a large following is because one can trust that they aren’t going to be listing IP ranges you really want to be receiving email from.

Cyberbunker and others can complain about Spamhaus being powerful, but the truth is that if they weren’t doing a good job, the false positive rate would cause receivers to stop using the Spamhaus list. It’s a self-policing feedback loop. Q.E.D.

These ISP guys simply try to cry wolf but if they are found guilty, they will get into more trouble. The problem here is if it can be proven spam originated from them or not. If it can, they are gone; if it can’t, Spamhouse might be on the receiving end.
