well understood, but i thought there would have been a larger level/number of spam sent out from any specific place till its marked as spam server.
ive been checking around to broaden my view of it, and found out the following info/ideas:
any given dynamic ip could and most probably will be blacklisted in near future
it is computer owner/operators duty to secure it, but ISPs to stop the propagation of any possible spam resulting of machine owners security breach
machine owner will be blacklisted for indefinite amount of time since, at one point in time there was another (most probably in case of dynamic ip) machine which was involved in sending spam
being blacklisted with no firm grounds is a bit unfair, so what can we do about it? security has to be tight, but legitimate access should not be denied, righthttp://www.uceprotect.net/en/rblcheck.php
has given not reported spam for my present ip, and before i tried logging in to forum (am working using windows now), i checked my ip to see if it was listed. there was insignificant amount of reports, out of few dozen of spam blacklist databases, only a few were tagged. i tried logging in and got in trouble free.
i hope i dont get bsod during time on line, but if i do, i ll repeat the procedure, just to make sure, and without clearing the cookies, try logging in and see what happens- session will be set to 6 hrs for the sake of test.
in case i fail, i ll try using the proxy as i did the other day, but what really bothers me is how come i got the banned note, not a warning that id be banned, but banned straight away. now, that flow of things id like to get to know a bit better, SAFELY, of course, so i dont remain locked outside the building- (just in case it happens so someone can come and save me).
op, i know the security is a complex matter, thanks for giving me lively example, but was thinking that it took bombs and not light breeze to set some up, even though, logically and statistically youre right, but what dont add up is the overall effect. if it were all static IPs, then and only then it would make sense and would work all the way; the way it is set now is a drive by shooting many innocent folks getting scratched and more...
seems i ll have to implement a procedure of my own till this gets sorted out really, just to avoid the inconvenience.
