AISI - for example - and AISI feeds the top 25 australian ISPs - takes
IODEF as an input

And MAAWG does ARF, quite simple to use as well .. but they would take
a standard format (with an RFC yet) if you and some other major

1. Offer iodef (or say ARF) feeds
2. Tell them youre offering these feeds

Its a standard. And it allows automated parsing of these complaints.
And automation increases processing speeds by orders of magnitude..
you dont have to wait for an abuse desker to get to your email and
