…is it just me, or does “give us your server root logins” seem like an odd response from a web host when I provide them with an IP and domain from which I’m getting hammered with spam? I mean, shit, I can drop in an .htaccess IP-blocker on my own site if I have to, but I’d think a host would want to be blacklisting that IP system wide. And yeah, I know, IPs cover a world of territory and not everybody coming from that IP might be evil, but still, WTF?

Also, having spent the last 90 minutes scrubbing the garden wall, I think I can safely say it looked better before I started. :)

eta: somebody who knew his ass from a hole in the ground responded in a more constructive manner when I wrote back to say WTF.
