I have no idea wahta the facts are here, but as a general statement
I'd point out that some of us have recently been in a free-fire zone
with more than we can handle coming at us from everywhere.

A reasonable reaction to protect own-turf is to plug up holes as
you identify the local end of it and wait to see if anybody cares
about it after the fire-fight.

The likelyhood of being able to contact anybody competent and
sympathetic is not worth the time and effort the attempt takes.

The usual response back when I thought I should try was "you are not
our customer...." with the common alternative being "Please reboot
and see if that clears it up."
