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.
