actually it isn't ok even then - look at the note at the bottom of the
page Mike referred to - http://www.spamcop.net/fom-serve/cache/14.html

Spamcop isn't telling you to do that, all the rules are saying is don't
use Spamcop to send those reports.

Spamcop is a partial solution for a specific subset of all this crap. The
capacity of Spamcop is (and has been) increasing. It was a notable
occasion when Spamcop reached its millionth report after many months - now
it's handling more than 10 million per day. It's admittedly not keeping
up with the size of the problem, nor is it adapting to deal with other
increasing and related problems of bounces, worm-generated emails, etc.,
but I don't see how that could be perceived as being on the other side.
If you don't like Spamcop, you don't have to use it.
