Hey, bad quotation!  I'm not from Australia.  That's not my writing.  Nor
did I ever advocate releasing a customer's details -- to anybody. :-(

I also disagree with your point about responsibilities of ISPs.  Yes, it's
true that Microsoft externalized its costs upon its customers.

But only the ISPs are in a position to detect the abuse, and that's part of
the business.  Some of us take network security seriously.
