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.
