Some DNS Requests Ruled Illegal in North Dakota

Yottabyte84 Re:Unbelievable (331 comments)

This is one way to deal with it:

$ telnet mailin-01.mx.aol.com 25
Connected to da.mx.aol.com.
Escape character is '^]'.
220-rly-da05.mx.aol.com ESMTP mail_relay_in-da05.2; Thu, 17 Jan 2008 13:03:52 -0500
220-America Online (AOL) and its affiliated companies do not
220- authorize the use of its proprietary computers and computer
220- networks to accept, transmit, or distribute unsolicited bulk
220- e-mail sent from the internet. Effective immediately: AOL
220- may no longer accept connections from IP addresses which
220 have no reverse-DNS (PTR record) assigned.

All geeks are required to hate spam. It's in the by-laws, go check.
