RE: AOL Postmaster?
I'm still getting feedback on netblocks we haven't been associated with in several years and I've tried about 20 times to get them to stop it but cannot. If you call they just tell you to email, if you email you get nowhere.
Some general, useful NANOG collected wisdom:
"It is so easy to miss pretty trivial solutions to problems deemed complicated. The goal of a scientist is to find an interesting problem, and live off it for a while. The goal of an engineer is to evade interesting problems :)" -- Vadim Antonov
"Protecting everything you've decided is important may be expensive. It may not be worth the cost. It's best to have made that calculation before the problem starts, when there's still time to spend money on protection if you do decide it's worth it." -- Steve Gibbard
"Curse the dark, or light a match. You decide, it's your dark." -- Valdis Kletnieks
That is why we've always used a role email account, like aolabuse@xxxxxxxxxx for an (non-actual) example, specifically setup to receive AOL's SCOMP feed. Much easier to change than a personal email. Much easier to /dev/null if the sending party has lost their clue.
