Exactly. From all Terry has said so far, it really sounds like:
a) he continues to believe, or at least market to his client, the idea
that "only accepting connections from **systems** inside the
geographic area they service" is **equal** to "only accepting
connections from **REAL** customers or potential customers who LIVE
AND WORK "inside the geographic area they service""
b) his clients are in the same situation as those people who start
using C-R systems without having a clue as to what they really do
and are happy because they don't realize that they aren't blocking
Final note to Terry: if your clients are happy, OK. Although you're
making them a disservice if you haven't clearly explained that the
assumption in point a) above, upon which you are building the service
you sell them, has very shaky basis in reality: *they* may still be
one of the exceptions, I'm not in a position to deny it or to care at
all, but they should be sure to be one of such exceptions.
The _only_ thing which made unhappy "a few people on this list" (or
me, at least), is simply the idea to endorse, even by just being
silent, the assumption in point a) as a general criterion valid in
anything but very few, fery special situations.
Then again, there's nothing Postfix anymore in this thread and there
is almost unanimity on the matter, so why continue on the list?
