I got a couple of email messages from very smart people on the Jon Gilmore vs. Verio controversy. They both said that Gilmore is wrong, and I agree with them. There are plenty of ways for Gilmore to provide the ability to relay mail for his friends without opening up his mail server to the entire world. He’s not being a very responsible Internet citizen, and while I know he’s trying to make some point about personal liberty, I think that Verio has as much a right to block his relay as he has to keep it wide open.
