That is not exactly correct -- the person who wrote to us said basically "if
you or your users want to report spam originated in or hosted by AU IPs then
you can do this ...." It came up, actually, because there were some users
who were adding in an address in their reports which was not the right place
to send SC reports. I am assuming that this group of people is trying to
get a decent handle on the situation and so they not only need to know what
Aussies are receiving but also what the rest of the world is. I mean they
won't have really cleared up the problems if all Aussie spammers carefully
avoid ever sending spam to other Aussies will they :-)

Maybe it's better disguised?
