Except that there's a big, quiet gap between hops 23 and 39... it could be
some sort of VPN, as Graeme stated... so the ability to determine where it
is would be very beneficial. Then at least we'd know which ISPs were in that
area, so we could contact them and ask them to look for a constant
connection coming from the IP in China to one of their machines. If they
find that, they find the spammer.
What if a large majority of the spammers start using VPN connections to make
it appear as though they are in one location, although they're really in
another? How do we track them down then?
