OK, you don't know much about Spamhaus. Dealing with network abuse
issues is what we do 24/7. John Lopez contacted my privately and I've
given him the address of TurkTelekom's security guy, but the reality
of things is that today is a Saturday and tomorrow is a Sunday,
unless TurkTelekom's guy is working weekends (unlikely) ACL'ing the
source is not just an advisable option but is probably until Monday
the only option.
