We have been seeing every variety of scan from Wanadoo since before I
started here three years ago.  We have sent them hundreds of complaints
and have never received anything other than a canned response in
return.  As far as I know, they are a branch of France Telecom, which
is owned at least in part by the French gov't.  To be fair, however, we
also see a lot of attacks from various U.S. cable/DSL/telco netblocks
and we never get anything other than a canned response from them,
