customers are paying for good traffic to generate eye balls and revenue, not bad traffic which clouds the good work done.
I know we are getting into filtering traffic wars here but if the source admins refuse to respond, refuse to cooperate, then if 100% of the traffic is bad then why not put up walls.

I would like country trade talks to get down to the technical point that there are some fundamental problems being seen with bad traffic usage and it is significant percentage of waste bandwidth.
