I've quite new to use this feature, but my site (quite private) allready got 
10 issues in my "fightback"-summary. Only one of those has answered (and 
that's by a autoreply (in which i'm told that they really dosn't got time for 
my, or dshields, observation)) to me. It's not ok if the abuser does  not 
reply. He or she maybe not be aware what their computer create on the net. 

He or she maybe do not have an smtp-server running while they almost surley do 
not get any notification from dshield which would be bad for them as they 
don't get any notification that they made some dumb things on the Internet or 
that they have a corrupted computer making bad things. As I could read the  
functions with dshields, a message goes both to the ip-address that, 
hopefully, created the scene and to their ISP. Shouldn't anyone of those two 
feel any sorts of responsability to elliminate or decrease such an act? 

Hope that the ISP do not create new rules fore what goes in and out from their 
firewall. A censured activity would not be right to all of those ISP-users 
which know how to use their computer. But shouldn't the ISP be responsible to 
tell their customers that they maybe got som trouble that they propably not 
aware about?  I'd would apprechiate that as an customer and I'm surely 
apprechiate an answer from the ISP that  they try to do something about it! 
Or dosn't the ISP feel any responsability beside making money???
