telia.com - my ISP - has sent out emails to its subscribers stating that (roughly translated) they have stopped all forwarding of email to AOL.
As i dont have any friends or contacts within the AOL domain, i cannot verify this. From what i understand this only applys to people who host their own email servers (companys etc) in a bid to stop unsolicited spreading of spam mail from said companies.
Does anyone have any info on why just AOL has been targeted? I think that AOL has been complaining about the large amount of spam from the Nordic countries, but cannot confirm this.
Also, a few months ago, my ISP also stopped all access to the alt.binaries newsgroups - in a bid to stop the spread of CP. A very good move of course, but causing grief to those who used those newsgroups for legal and clean activities. Maybe a few other ISP's should consider the same move. It wont stop the problem but it does make the spread of this stuff more difficult.
Just a bit of info
