I've been getting tons of spam for the past several days, and am wondering whether something changed at spamhaus or something. I didn't see anything on their site. I just use as my blacklist server. Any recommendations, apart from giving up on SIMS? :-)

I don't use SIMS for any incoming mail any more, but I've seen a steady growth of spam in general over the past week or so.  My Gmail box typically shows under 20,000 in the spam folder, but it had jumped up to almost 26,000 in the course of a week.   Maybe they just hadn't done the automatic dumping for a while, but it seemed that more was slipping through than usual.

I've seen an increase in spam of 50-100% over the last week or so.  It's all getting caught by spamassassin, but yes, there does seem to be more of it.

Stomach in! Chest out! on your marks! get set! GO!  Now, now that
you're free, what are you gonna be?  Who are you gonna see? And
where, where will you go, and how will you know you didn't get
it all wrong?
