We have a distinct abuse address (not just abuse@) and that is where
the messages were sent.

We didn't receive the bomb threat ones. We only received the (somewhat
more amusing) messages entitled "Your network has been PWNED" and
"Fuck you".
The situation loses its humor entirely with the introduction of bomb
threats. Seems like a script kiddie taking things way too far.
