We subscribe to www.dshield.org and their auto-"fight back" scheme.
You forward them a processed copy of your log entries and they can
auto-complain if more than some threshold of probes are detected
from a given IP.  We strip out all local-source IPs from the
iptables/ipchains logs on a few hosts and send them the rest.
The local ones are handled separately.

They submit a summary of info to the SANS Internet Storm Center.

They have a top-10 most wanted by IP (which right now
contains a host at purdue.edu, one at uiuc.edu and one from
wanadoo.fr among others.)

They seem open to new ideas, so a networks "bad list" might
be a possibility.
