I may have been a bit too quick on
the draw yesterday.
It seems that the previous sysadmin had started to move the site I
was trying to move but didn't finish it. And the initial move was to the
server I was trying to move it to, so of course the control panel software

And I still hate control panels.
has either ignored me and doesn't
care, or the system that keeps
spamming me is so infected with virii that nothing short of cutting the
network cable will stop it.
Their spam via my backup MX host
has stopped, as Rob (previous roommate and sysadmin of my backup MX host) has blocked the IP address
now I'm blocking that address on my primary MX host.
The only thing I have to decide is if I want to “reject” the packets
(which sends back notification that a connection isn't wanted) or “deny”
(which silently drops the packets with nary a word as to why causing the
sending side to keep trying and trying … )
Decisions … decisions …
