Spamhaus is a massive network of black-lists that works in conjunction with processes running on mail servers worldwide. Like a giant bug zapper in the middle of a dense jungle, it protects our life blood, clean email boxes, from the savagery of those insects in the dark unknown. The low down: A lawsuit was filed, Spamhaus failed to respond, the court ordered a shutdown.
It looked bleak, until today. ICANN stepped up to the plate to give us a little hope.
