I was SO looking forward to using BlueFrog AntiSpam when all of the sudden it shuts down! :thumbsup:

Black Frog leaps into fight against spam

Spammers beware--hostile amphibians are once again rising against you.

First there was Blue Frog, a community antispam effort that stopped operating last week after Blue Security, the company that started the project, came under a withering denial-of-service attack.

Out of the ashes comes Black Frog, part of a project that is apparently willing to become a flag bearer in the fight against spam. The project, dubbed Okopipi, is developing the Black Frog antispam software as an open-source project, according to the group's wiki.

I don't see why this would be any better though. As far as I can tell it still has pretty much the same security flaws as Blue Frog did.
