Maybe we could all setup NOC addresses that require a confirmation before
accepting email? At least for those of us that need to contact somebody, a
quick "Reply to this with code xxx to be on our whitelist) is a simple
hurdle. It will help lists like Jared's that are primarily about increasing
communication, not spam erradication. After someone gets whitelisted, they
can ask for the correct address to send abuse requests or draw attention to
issues that haven't been addressed through normal channels.

maybe noc-whitehat at domain.com or noc-whitelist at domain.com so everyone knows
what to expect.

Just an idea.
