http://www.nzherald.co.nz/storyprint.cfm?storyID=3561035 - some very interesting points here.

Recently http://www.baddrivers.co.nz came to my attention.

Yes, at last there is a site that will help rid Zealand of the Losers who call themselves 'Boy Racers'.

This site will also help improve the driving overall of Zealand drivers, and give another avenue for all those good drivers out there to report the fools that we see on the road each and every day!

Oh yes.. all those 'good' drivers out there.

Well Mr Lewis I have some questions for you...

Thanks to thesun.co.uk, of course. :P

The subsequent actions of Spamhaus in blackholing the mail delivery servers involved ended up catching quite a few people as 'collateral damage' - Including the New Zealand Herald.

Why can't people just engage brain before blindly spamming the world?

A good paper on the functionality in IRC Bots - especially those intent on exploiting remote hosts.
