Comcast causing mail problems? Could be worse.. could be bloody yahoo!

They do the whole 400 series temporary error thing repeatedly, sometimes for up to 72 hours or so! ... and sometimes even longer.

I get the impression the problem arises when people subscribe to things like topic notifications etc., then rather than unsubscribing they hit the "mark as spam" button.

Believe it or not, AOL is very sane here - when a complaint happens, you can nominate a contact and copies of emails that were complained about (less addresses) get sent through to nominated address. Given the emails also often contain specific URLs with UIDs etc. - one can find the user in question and unsubscribe them from stuff etc.
