Ah, I knew this was coming.

For the record:

  Digex.net does not do any sort of web hosting.  Digex.com does not
do any sort of leased line sales.

Digex.net is Intermedia. Digex.com is Digex, the web hosting arm of

and I'm hoping that everybody realizes that the digex.net/icix.net
folks have nothing to do with this whatsoever.  I have no idea if
digex.com knew what they were getting into with this.  I hope they
did not.  Please, though, don't harrass/mailbomb us IBI/digex.net 
folks.  We're innocent.  I swear.

Intermedia is clued WRT abuse. (If they weren't, I wouldn't be an IBI
reseller.) In fact the person who is more or less in charge of abuse over
there is a friend of mine and is at least a lurker here -- However,
although I have the pleasure of knowing some of the people on the UUNET
abuse team - and there are plenty of people there who take joy in
thwacking spam and spammers - I don't know if they have any authority over
the other Worldcom divisions. Supposedly, if a UUNET sales droid spams,
they get spanked pretty hard. But this is Digex, not UUNET.

It is important to note that while they still use digex.net, IBI's name is
Intermedia Business Internet. Digex *is* strictly hosting, and I've been
corrected by my friend the abuse czar more than once. Digex != IBI; IBI !=
Digex. Digex is part of the "Degeneration D" Collective.
