Fear not, today's spike is just a result of SpamCop limping along for 24
hours or so. Take look at a graph for a larger timeframe - 1 week or 1
month. You'll see that there was a problem that kept submissions/reports at
below-normal levels. Once the problem was resolved, the backlog started
processing with a vengeance.
Worth noting: I just got the confirmation e-mail for a small batch of spam I
submitted about 30 hours ago.
Note: Spam-resistant e-mail address
