It was mentioned that this might be offtopic for this list, however I did want 
to get a feel for the attitudes of network operators, in light of the recent 
discussions regarding the Russian Operators.. and blocking routing et al..

At what point does it become an issue to the point where operators demand that 
others are responsible for the activiities coming from their networks?

Wanted to start a thread on this issue.. 

It was mentioned that not routing operators who are puported to be 
owned/operated/supported by criminal activities, in conjunction with the 
Russian IP's, and the controversy on the Hurricane Electric actions..

I think this is on topic.. However, if others think it isn't I will not post 
to this subject here further...

I do know that there is a lot of chatter on this list, so I fully understand 
if it needs to be kept for strictly technical problems, rather than
