Re: anti-spam vs network abuse

For the past 15 months, NJABL has reactively tested systems that have
connected to participating SMTP servers to see if those systems are open
relays. ...

We do not consider what NJABL does abuse, ...


If "they" are indeed only testing systems who connect to them, it's not
abuse, and I would not have complained.  However, they scanned every
address in every netblock I own, looking for SMTP servers.  That was
abuse, that was illegal in California, and I was shocked that you "allowed"
"them" to behave that way.  Hopefully my inference is correct and "they"
are now scanning only the hosts which connect to participating SMTP servers.
