We may be getting somewhere with this.  Its harrassing the debian list
too, and one customer of this ISP suggested we in turn harrass a regular
list of addresses, so I'm forwarding everything I get to:
abuse at, uol at, security at,
mail-abuse at

Just for effects mind you, and I'm adding a header line X-Clueless Twit
with a value of SPAMMER :)

As usual though, no response.  Warrens actions seems to have pretty
well slowed the flood here.

Cheers, Gene
