Yes, that's been a number of the complaints over the years. Again, one
of the reasons that got me to do up the single-page access version.

Are you attempting to answer my actual query for input on attempting
to do this "portal" page, doing more complaining about the existing
www.spamcop.net FAQ, or suggesting that you or someone else is
going to try to write up something that takes all the existing data on
how to work-around various issues into an "all you need to do is ..."????
Recall tha this is one of the biggest headaches, everyone wants to
use their favorite tools, then bitch that the SpamCop parser isn't
compliant, vice the "all you need" requirement of simply needing
an RFC compliant agent (and server) ...????

Based on your "never been there" and that Miss Betsy hasn't tried
to meet the cyclic "someone ought to post a FAQ every day/week/
month" thing in quite a while ... have you ever looked at the (Forum)
FAQ or Miss Betsy's effort on the "Why am I Blocked?" FAQ
entry (developed in the Forum) ??? Did you note that this was in fact
the first 'extra' link I placed into the "site navigation" box?
