As a paying member of many years, I've been experiencing unusually long delays, 404's, proxy errors, gateway timeouts, and other strange errors when trying to submit spam reports. There is a very long thread in the 'general' forum discussing the issue. Like some of the commentators, I'm wondering how a company with resources like Cisco (owner of Spamcop) could let this problem persist for so long. Admin posts to the discussion thread keep indicating the problem is fixed, there's a big backlog, it should be working, etc. but that's not the case from my point of view (and may others). Could it be because Cisco doesn't care about the service anymore and are not giving it their full attention? Is this the beginning of the end for Spamcop?
