   while this is not me you were refering to, i contacted privately Jo
   on this matter - a customer, probably upset, decided to fire-up a
   batch of misguided spam reports

   while there is certainly outdated abuse info for some of our blocks,
   in this particular case the subnet that was allocated to us has
   up-to-date mail+phone info

   and thanks to some posters further up the thread: the abuse mailbox
   is indeed cabuse at tatacommunications.com
