why is this IP set not black listed ? Appears to originate from Iran(?) I am being slammed 1000's per hour, everyday. They are being 'rate controlled' but constant, non stop. When I had a spam bug and was spamming the internet I was blacklisted and shutdown immediately a couple times. How is it this set is allowed to spam massivly?

Just because an IP is being rate controlled does not mean they will be blocklisted

An IP is blocked when it is reported by our customers as sending out spam.

Rate control is one of the methods we use to close down a mass mailer. 

Rate control does no equate to being a spammer.
