Also, you can very well disable new allocations to Spammer-Bob, did
you also know his friend Sue is asking now for space? Sue is very
nice, she even has cookies... oh damn after we allocated to her we
found out she's spamming :(

Spammers have a lot of variables to change in this equation, RIR's
dont always have the ability to see all of the variables, nor
correlate all of the changes they see :(
