No it isn't, Alan uses ORBS and you are obviously black listed there
(http://www.orbs.org).

This one seems to come up every now and then, and always turns into a
flamewar. Now it's Alan's choice so if you want to argue over this,
take it somewhere else please.

Who is maintaining the FAQ? this might be a good idea to add to under
the mailing list section.

You're in ORBS. Fix your open relay and get out of ORBS ...

I think this one needs to go into the FAQ!

Q: When I send private e-mail to Alan Cox, it bounces. Why?
A: Alan has blocked all incoming e-mail except from a list of addresses
known to be good. You'll need to post to the list to be seen by him.

Cheers,
Alex

Try

A: Alan like many people filters mail using the MAPS RBL, DUL and ORBS
spam relay lists. See http://www.mail-abuse.org and http://www.orbs.org for
more information

Okay, please explain why ORBS tells me it does *not*
identify my ISP's SMTP server as an open relay?

mail.megapathdsl.net = 216.200.176.7

ORBS says:

Database Check - 216.200.176.7
216.200.176.7 is not in the main automated
open relay database

Thanks,
Miles

Thank you,

I will go pummel my ISP's technical staff into the
pavement until this is fixed.

Cheerio,

Yo Miles!

Well I see 216.200.176.7 in ORBS:

$ chk-rly 216.200.176.7
rbl.maps.vix.com =>
rss.maps.vix.com =>
dul.maps.vix.com =>
relays.orbs.org => 127.0.0.4
relays.orbs.org => untestable - above.net has multiple open relays and has blocked the ORBS tester.
outputs.orbs.org =>

[Raises hand] Send me a patch. And see section 5.14, which has been
there for some time.

BTW: you never did get around to sending me a patch for why C++ in the
kernel was evil ;-)
