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. >:)
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
