Spamcop.net has been having problems for the past week with no date or time when it will be fixed.

Almost looks like a intermittent DDOS attack.

Over the past week Cisco has been actively investigating increased spam volumes as a result of increased
botnet activity. The results of this investigation have allowed Cisco to improve on the industry-leading
anti-spam solution to our customers. SpamCop.net is instrumental in collecting message samples for our ongoing
investigation, and as a result some SpamCop.net users looking to submit their spam samples have experienced delays
with the service. We apologize for these intermittent delays and will do everything possible to minimize these
as our investigation continues. We are pleased to report that at the time of writing, the SpamCop service is fully operational.


It does not sound good for spamcop

The above was posted today.
It should have said two weeks.
