Agreed.  One of the things that I would really like the new improved
ASRG to work on is email abuse report standards.  Just a standard
abuse report format in XML that makes it possible to tell reliably
who's complaining, what they're complaining about, any why they think
you're responsible (IP address, URL, whatever) would be a big step

CAUCE is about anti-spam laws more than anti-spam technology, but
fortunately it only takes a moment to switch CAUCE hat for my ASRG
