    Is this really appropriate for Slashdot?

    An ISP in **HAWAII** wanting people to sign up for an account with them under the premise of beta-testing their spam service? Tell you what. How is this relevant to the other 99.999% of the globe who don't live in Hawaii and couldn't use their service? This is nothing more than a *VERY* thinly veiled advertisement.

      Answer from article:

      Participants can be anywhere in the world, though Spammo filters for English language only so far.

      People, please read the articles before posting.

    • I lived in Hawaii from 1999 to 2002. I used LavaNet's dial up service. I was very pleased with their service. Their dial-up connections were fast as dial up connections can be. (That is, downloading Mozilla took 45 minutes to an hour). The staff was very friendly and support was very smart and helpful and not braindead.

      If their quality is the same as it was when I was living there, then I feel that this new anti-SPAM product will work well and kick ass.

      I encourage people to help LavaNet test this product.

    This is totally redundant. Didn't the new CAN-SPAM act in the USA completely eradicate all spam everywhere? Including hidden Weapons of Marketing Directly?

    Nothing to see here. I live in Hawaii and heard about their plans. It is based on a BSD and spamassassin. Ultimately their plans are to sell an appliance based on this technology. Nothing new to see here.
