Greetings, David:

Yes, I agree that a well-protected and moderated site that
listed problem networks would be an excellent idea. SANS
has a list of the "Top 10 Most Wanted" that contains the 10
worst offenders in the previous 5 day period.

If a list such as that were combined into a list of sources
and ISP's that are the least responsive, and if enough of us
blocked the offenders, it might just hit their bottom line
hard enough for them to start taking some responsibility.

Best regards,
Walter G. Aiello
