For Webmasters: "My IP Neighbors"

Okay, this has nothing to do with writing, but it has something to do with hosting an online 'zine (or online anything else, for that matter).

A while back I had to write to AT&T to get them to allow my email to go through to att.com (or was it .net?) email addresses. I assume that part of the problem was my shared hosting services -- if you don't have a dedicated server, a dedicated IP address, who knows who else might be sending spam out using your IP address?

I just found myipneighbors.com, which shows me all of the sites (159 of them!) that share Flash Fiction Online's IP address: At least one is an adult site, and who knows who else is spamming whom from there? Use Firefox or Safari to view it or the scrolling is a total pain in the neck.
