Now that you mention it...
In our admittedly limited experience, we get network abuse reports
addressed to our "abuse" alias, and nothing but misaddressed messages to
"security" -- these latter are all intended for our Office of Safety and
Security, aka the Campus police office. S & S is, in turn, sort of
annoyed they don't have a memorable email alias for folks to use to
contact them. Around campus, they are universally known as "Security"

Is it out of line to consider assigning the email alias "security AT
Oberlin DOT edu" to the folks in blue while expecting /network/ security
issues to be addressed to "abuse?"
