Do you mean to tell me you can't find contact info for ANY of those ISPs on your own (like those ALTERNET guys, they're hard to track down)? Are you trying to start a service for notifing ISPs when they have drones behind them or something? Surely you don't expect to obtain a comprehensive list by posting a list of AS names and half chopped off descriptions to NANOG, without even including the AS numbers? I'd personally love more reporting services that will actually disclose information to the ISPs who can actually take action to help straighten out their customers. We have far too many people who sit around wringing their hands about how horrible the botnets are, but who won't tell anyone who can do anything about it out of a paranoid sense of "security". I'm not sure this is the best way to go about that though. :) -- Richard A Steenbergen <email@example.com> http://www.e-gerbil.net/ras GPG Key ID: 0xF8B12CBC (7535 7F59 8204 ED1F CC1C 53AF 4C41 5ECA F8B1 2CBC)
