Comment: Who looks at the domain anyhow? (Score 1) 147

by daringone (#33050402) Attached to: Spammers Moving To Disposable Domains
It's been 3 years or so since I've been in the business of killing spam, but I recall never EVER caring about the domain name that is so easily forged anyhow. I only ever cared about IP addresses. I even wrote some nifty stuff to analyze my SA logs that once an IP had sent me a configurable amount of spam over a configurable score, that I added the IP to my blocklist and wouldn't allow it to even connect to my server. If I saw enough junk from the same subnet, the whole subnet would eventually be blocked. There was also a timeout on these entries, but they became progressively longer the each time they were re-added to the list.

This little tiny engine,about the same size as a basketball, has more power than my 3.0 litre engine and can be scaled up to power a freight train or semi-truck. From the main site, "The MYT(TM) Engine has the potential to replace all the existing internal combustion engines and jet engines. With 40 times higher power to weight ratio, low parts count, low maintenance, high mechanical efficienty, and low pollution, the MYT(TM) Engine will benefit airplane, big ship, 18 wheeler, SUV, passenger car, even down to carry on power generator applications. The MYT(TM) Engine as a pump/compressor also exceeds exisiting pumps/compressors in providing massive pressure, volume, and flow, all in one unit."

Make sure you check out the videos located here. This engine can even run on plain old air!"
