I had to take down the centralized antispam backlist because it's really eating up a lot of resources, thus slowing down the main site.
If you really rely on the centralized blacklist more than on your own spam defeating techniques (or on the new Phoenix techniques), I'd like to hear from you.
Also, in order to put the list back up, we could really really use someone willing to provide some server CPU & RAM to run something like antispam.b2evolution.net . It's mostly about processing SQL queries in memory. It's not that much about bandwidth or disk space. If you feel like giving it a try, please step forward Thanks!
