I didn't want to spend too much time sorting out Google
searches ;) Anyhow, how do we get others to understand
the need for something like this (information via say
whois trickled from an nslookup on a netblock). That
would definitely be more productive than someone having
to contact abuse - which is highly likely going to
ignored/not remedied appropriately.

Would definitely be a plus for me if say I had someone
directly contact my SOC team for a security related
issue. Would save time for me and the caller. I see it
as a no brainer... Others will likely see it as "that's
what abuse is for"

Maybe Jared should start a SOC contact page or something
