However, airing what are the real reasons why we want to do all that and gathering consensus from the community at large will help to accomplish our task effectively. > While BCP is mentioned there, I do not think that expands to FBLs or > the flow of an abuse complaint. I possibly misused the term "FBL", meaning what Tobias calls "global reporting" --see below. > As Suresh says, this may be far better placed in the AA-WG, > although I'm not sure how much spare time we have in the session > right now. Having such a session may be a neat idea too. Hanging a poster is just an easy and a rakish way to raise attention/consensus.

Knowing early if it is landscape or portrait will help. On 12/Apr/11 22:20, Tobias Knecht wrote: >> A third thing is to maintain this information.

Someone mentioned abuse at ripe.net will be put in use, some day. Perhaps, RIPE will just blindly forward reports to the relevant allocation-specific abuse POC, in some cases. In such cases, the Sender should find the target address directly (and thus optimize the traffic.) This consideration would suggest a "hierarchical database", in some sense. To depict it, we may represent a Receiver forwarding a report to a sub-allocation, e.g. an ISP to a customer of theirs. > The abusix "global reporting" is not subscription based.

AFAIK, the abusix db can be considered a sort of whois digest, rather than independent data. Dunno about the other two. Shall we depict multiple databases? > Or is your definition of a feedbackloop just reporting abusive > behavior back to its source? Yeah, sort of. I never saw a formal definition, but IMHO it should provide for reaching the original source --the author-- of a reported message, in some cases. > If that is the way we are talking different directions just by not > having the same definition. :-) Yup, most likely. Some definitions, a legend, and a title would complete the poster.
