I side with and fully support RoadRunner. Open relays are a very important
Classic Computing feature, and every true ClassicCmper must support them.

The class action suit should of course be against the blockers. We really need
a law that guarantees penalties for spamblockers 10 times greater than those
for spammers. If you send spam, you get 1 year in prison. If you assault an
open relay operator, mangle E-mail addresses, or do anything else to desecrate
the Classic Computing tradition, you should get 10 years in prison. If a
spammer gets 5 years in prison, spamblockers must get 50 years.
