What a nice DOS that would be ;) In theory, the provider will get a nice e-mail before they're blocked... if someone's trying to pull a fast one, the ISP will be able to look at that and determine whether or not it's legitimate. Now, if the provider doesn't respond, they might get a little blacklisted... but is that necessarily bad, given the previous check? -rt -- Ryan Tucker <firstname.lastname@example.org> Network Administrator NetAccess, Inc.
