SpamCop fills the paddy-wagon

And again, its GMail users in the shackles. SpamCop recently added several Gmail servers to its blacklist.

They prefer instead to push their own IP in place of the standard “X-Originating-IP” header line delivered from competing webmail providers, so SpamCop added the whole server(s).
