Yeah. I miss the days that you could fix Covad problems by calling Brent,
or by sending the attacker a Ping of Death :-)
In practice, of course, the chances are extremely high that
the attacker is a zombie pc whose owner is not aware
that it's infected, and they really need their ISP to
quarantine them somewhere until they can get it fixed.
Note that this isn't my regular email account - It's still experimental so far.
And Google probably logs and indexes everything you send it.
