Attn MCI/UUNet - Massive abuse from your network
(apologies to NANOG for only quasi-operational content of this message - I only post this here due to the fact that I am sure it is a problem on many of your networks)
Regarding your continued unabated spam support, when do you plan to address the *189* issues outlined in the Spamhaus SBL (http://www.spamhaus.org/sbl/listings.lasso -> ISPs in the United States -> MCI.com )? Here's part of your AUP:
Sending unsolicited mail messages, including, without limitation, commercial advertising and informational announcements, is explicitly prohibited. A user shall not use another site's mail server to relay mail without the express permission of the site.
What does your ethics department say about your blatant disregard for the internet in general and your complete and willful ignorance of your stated policies and procedures? Does UUNet *ever* plan on enforcing this AUP?
I can't help but notice that several of these spammers are career hard-line operations- including Eddy Marin, G-Force Marketing, and Atriks to name a few. Are these customers operating under some form of undisclosed "Special Customer Agreement" ( http://global.mci.com/publications/service_guide/s_c_a/)? If so, how much do they pay for their pink contract?
At this point I am just curious what the answers to these questions are. I have not (yet) widely blocklisted uunet, but if things don't change I fear such a measure may be the only way to stop the abuse spewing from your networks. Seeing such a large (and once-respected) network go as completely black-hat rogue as UUNet has is a sad thing.
Any reply at all would be most welcome.
