holyhippie: (Peace)
As many of you may know, my day job is to administer the email servers for a large computer company. I also run a small server at home that does email and DNS, and acts as a backup for [livejournal.com profile] digitalsidhe. Recently, we had some incidents that highlight problems with anti-spam blacklists.

The bottom line for me is this: Knowing all the pitfalls of blacklists, I'm still going to use them. All the positives (immediate rejection, order of magnitude reduction in work scanning message text) far outweigh the potential negatives.
