Statistics Update

The Tar Pit has now been running since 21:09 on 21st September and the current stats are as at (13:15 on 25th September):

Emails blocked: 7449
Hours in Tar Pit: 1995.28
Unique SMTP Hosts: 5961

...that's a lot of SPAM, considering we're only talking about a few domains.

A quote from someone who's using the SMTP Tar Pit at

"I've noticed my spam has dropped right off in the last few days
I reckon you are sucking them all in"

So, it's working... just tell everyone you know about it... we can only beat the spammers is people use tools like this to do so.
