I smell a rat. I have a funny feeling Edge1 is a front for pro-spammer Nick Geyer. Look at their whois: Edge1 Networks Hostmaster Edge1 25 Broadway - 5th Floor New York, NY 10004 US Phone: 212-248-1121 Fax..: 212-248-0929 But if you call Verizon, they'll tell you these lines terminate on the sixth floor of 25 Broadway, an address I remember all too well from the VMX Networks hijackings. If you want the abuse to stop, call Nick at work (212-685-2009) or on his cellular phone (503-851-1963) and tell him to knock it off. If Nick is busy or at a meeting, as is often the case ask to speak to his boss, Paul Hodara, and see if he can track him down. The Williams NOC could care less, if you want to get anywhere, try contacting Blake Williams (email@example.com) or Michael Winslow (Michael.Winslow@wcg.com), who are capable of taking action, including ultimately denying service to Edge1 for AUP violations.
