Gather evidence Verizon can't ignore. Send it to Verizon. Perhaps make
the evidence avialable to all.
It has worked for uu.net. It should work for Verizon.
I agree that Verizon is less than perfect. It is a less than perfect
world. If Verizon doesn't respond to mild reports give them strong (in the
sense that they contain incontrovertible evidence) reports.
Those probes are preludes to abuse. Let some in (a little) and capture the
abuse. Then tell Verizon.
Here's one way uu.net was persuaded to act:
uu.net IPs were showing up on this page. Anyone in the world who had the
URL could see that abuse appeared to be coming coming from uu.net
IPs. That, coupled with the information that uu.net also knew the URL
would indicate they were intentionally allowing abuse to be done that
involved their IPs. Not wishing to have that known, uu.net acted. Why
would Verizon be different? Any ISP?
