In my experience, it's the generally broadband access operators who will 
sometimes respond, when contacted about reflection/amplification attacks 
leveraging misconfigured, abusable CPE.

Generally speaking, networks running misconfigured, abusable devices by 
definition aren't very actively managed - and so those operators don't 
often respond, unless one has personal contacts within the relevant 

YMMV, of course.
