Well, if the community actually did it's job so mail to abuse@ and postmaster@
and similar role addresses actually got delivered instead of bouncing, and
then actually did some good rather than being unread/ignored, maybe we wouldn't
have to rely on a DNS jockey listed in a SOA record being pissed off enough
at being cc'ed on an abuse mail to get a co-worker's butt in gear.

Just sayin'.
