Anyone can ask to be added to the reports for a given IP or a deputy can add
an address. In this particular case wholesalebandwidth, who happens to own
the IP(s) being used by this spammer, has been removed from the primary
reporting structure due to inaction on reports and dealing with their
customers and has been added back in as a 3rd party. A 3rd party (expressed
an interest in) cannot close reports or remove other people from the
reporting structure. wholesalebandwidth was getting connectivity/transit
from another ISP and now appears to be getting transit from XO and XO is
receiving reports. Not being able to see what the autochecked boxes used to
be, I can't tell you why any previous recipient was set to devnull.
Leaving the checkboxes marked for devnull recipients adds to the blocklist
count for injecting IPs and the statistics for urls/domains. While the
system is not currently publishing statistics, leaving those boxes checked
can provide useful information on quantity of spams reported for a url if a
deputy does a "by abuse address" search so that also helps us get an idea of
the magnitude of a spam run.
