Pardon me. But I wasn't writing in Dutch. Was I? I was being rather clear 
one should NOT use country lists in my opinion but your response now seems 
to suggest I am al in favor.

Among the blocking entries in my postfix config is a number of header 
checks on charactersets no one is able to read here. So I loose a lot of 
Russian and Korean spam that way.

As far as complaints go. If the ISP at hand is not acting you can contact 
the CERT team which covers the area.
