wanadoo is already widely blocked not just by entire ISPs, but also by
many end users. so people have already decided wanadoo can be blocked.

maybe eventually wanadoo will get a clue, but I bet not. i mean, not even
internet-wide blocking has managed to get tiscali to remove their head
from their ass yet. so i won't expect anything better from wanadoo.

people on wanadoo who find their emails blocked, I recommend to them to
leave wanadoo and move to another ISP. most do leave wanadoo suprisingly
without complaints -- telling me that it was the straw that broke the
camel's back and they just needed a good excuse to leave wanadoo.

people stopped blocking aol after they finally started taking abuse
seriously. wanadoo will have to do the same before they get removed from
