The list washers / validators must be doing a brisk business today.
Many use Amazon hosting in what seems to be an attempt to evade blocking
by IP. Aside from the simple attempts I see some that are trying things

It seems somebody gave some fairly purposeful thought into coming up
with the algorithms to generate these. I'm curious to know what peoples
thinking is as to the hat color of these attempts. Particularly if
there are any opinions on the risk / need to block them.
