The idea is that you overlook SpamCop's parsing process, and make sure
you don't report:
- yourself (your own mail server)
- your mail provider (or access provider whose email services you use)
- any innocent bystanders (such as websites cited by a spammer to make
things look official or believable)
Uncheck any targets such as the above before you submit.
*That* process cannot be automated - it requires a human to make common-
If that means you get more spam than you have time to report - do it
"backwards": latest spams first (to increase the chance of stopping a
spamrun in its tracks). And just stop when you have no more time.
Quality of reporting is more important than quantity.

The enemy of my enemy can be my enemy, too.
