How long untill someone gets a domain in their list and points it at
the lycos servers?

Yes, the site in question seems to have drawn more than a few eyes to it. ;/ It's been up & down all day. While I don't really think "lycos Europe" methods are sound or sustainable; I'm not surprised that frustration with spam leads to a measure of corporate vigilantism. I suspect we may see more of this various venues to come. Though I doubt it will really help cure whatever cause the reaction. Hopefully the p2p clients won't pick up on the scent and throw a few GETs out for each search done, etc. >:)
