Yeah, I know.  This is exactly why no ISPs have abuse help desks that 
respond, and nobody can get even the most trivial problems solved.

We do better.  We answer *EVERY* abuse complaint.  Which isn't much, 
because we do the job correctly.  And we care about the 
reliability/usability of the 'Net as a whole.

So when the 'Net becomes partitioned by economics and politics, re-read 
this letter and know that "I told you so".  Know that being a smart-ass 
wasn't worth the effort.  It's already going there, and everyone whines 
but very few of us are doing the job in a manner appropriate to actually 
solving problems.
