heh... This is -exactly- what I am looking for. I send out lots of mail to
abuse@ (and the like) addresses to report drones, and I really need
something that I can use to track these outgoing reports so I can tell
what bots have been taken care of and which ones have not.

It would also be nice if this tool could allow me just to enter the
host/ip and the log, and it would find the appropriate abuse address and
submit it itself.

If you find anything that does something like this or anything related to
it, please let me know.
