The FTC did this about open relays a while back. And they are in touch with ISPs - go to any antispam conference (MAAWG, ITU/OECD etc) and you'll find at least some people from the FTC, FCC, commerce, state as well as people from assorted law enforcement agencies. They still would definitely welcome more operational perspective, and the recommendations they're forwarding on appear to be a precis of the MAAWG bcp for ISPs ... so this is government / regulators in an educating / facilitating role rather than a regulatory role. -- Suresh Ramasubramanian (email@example.com)
