It looks like there are lot of NZ based Zombies

This has really been going hard over the last hour.
I'm seeing adsl accounts at xtra, iprolink and ihug, xtra dialups etc etc.
And they are using NZ from addresses, we have had several complaint
about the university sending large amounts of spam... Yeah, right!
As a related issue, how do people feel about a whitelist RBL of NZ mail
servers, It looks like it's not good to just whitelist NZ IPs
Hmmm.... not sure if it would help much, you still need some way to
decide if the other stuff is spam since there is no straight forward way
for a mailer to decide if a source IP is in NZ or not.
