Re: Web slows under 'biggest attack ever'

said by voxframe:

It's only Spamhaus being attacked anyway.

Their listing service is utter dogshit, and trying to deal with them for anything is atrocious. Used to have to deal with these asshats years ago when their listings were horribly flawed. Nowadays people are intelligent enough to know not to use their listings.

Used to be 90% of the false positives came from them.

That false positive claim contradicts my experience with their service. I guess I am stupid? I still use them on my server.

My experience with them was quite a few years ago. But it was so souring that I'll never consider them a decent organization again.

I'd rather deal with a tax auditor.

Me too. We've been using them for several years. Zero false positives and minimal false negatives. That coupled with Bayesian filtering puts my false negatives well under 1%.

That is, until last week. Over the past few days we've seen a spike in false negatives.
