In looking through my logs I see some from aol, and they really are from
aol. This spam catcher address is embedded in HTML comment tags on some
pages the customer has. I verified the IP and it is aol.
We've been getting a lot of spam from aol lately, it seems that anyone
can just open up a free email account and start blasting.

HIDDEN@firstname.lastname@example.org> <email@example.com> 0 "Rcpt found in
g_black_to so you will be blocked for a period of time - correct mailing
My attitude with this is if aol isn't going to control the automated
spamming that comes from page scrapers where the spam trap email is
inside comment tags, then they deserve to be banned for short intervals.
I have no problems telling my customers that aol has spam problems and
it causes short interruptions and there's basically little we can do
about it until they clean up their act.
