what it will do is place a particular mailserver on its bl.spamcop.net,
if it gets enough reports of spam, not bounces even fake ones or virii,
or recently Mailing-List spam (unless your the admin for the list.)
It is them up to server admins to make use of the lists or not.
+ if spam is reported to an ISP mail-admin who does nothing,
they may well find themselves considered a spam friendly ISP,
and be blocked by other ISP's
All entries are auto. de-listed 48hrs after the last spam report for a
Spamcop "reportees" will lose their reporting service for will nilly reporting.
