Precisely. SPEWS is the Spam *Prevention* and *Early Warning* System
after all. If that doesn't look preemptive then I don't know what does.

Works fine for me, even though it doesn't have much to catch once the
SCBL, sbl-xbl.spamhaus.net and dul.dnsbl.sorbs.net have filtered out
most of the crap.

Add 22.214.171.124/8, 126.96.36.199/8, 188.8.131.52/8 to that. Plus the rest of LACNIC
space, China, Korea, Nigeria, Spain, Italy, Israel, all of Comcast,
VSNL, Dishnet, Bharti... If it weren't for the fact that I run a LUG
here in France I'd be blocking the whole of France too.
