Here is a relative new-comer on the anti-spam blog scene: Australian-based Spam Watchers (didn't find it mentioned on this forum yet). It looks like the entries in Spamwatchers are updated a few times a month, so I have bookmarked it.

Been around for 6 months now, already with 80 articles, very active with 2 to 4 new articles per week.

Welcome!

Vircom is a company which sells email security products. That's a point of view we don't hear from much on this forum, so it's good to have you participating.

Excellent article by John Horton about complaint procedures to registrars concerning illegal activity on domains

http://www.circleid.com/posts/20141208_ ... responses/

John gives very useful tips relating to the ICANN Registrar Accreditation Agreement ( https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/a ... -17-en#raa )

He also provides a link to the list of ICANN accredited registrars ( http://www.internic.net/alpha.html ) which is useful for finding out where to report them.
