Some feedback --e.g. "thanks, your complaint was useful: we closed that LIR", or "your complaint was useless, please avoid sending x in the future"-- might educate complainants and thus optimize the time spent on these issues by abuse teams at both RIPE's and complainants'. Of course, the more restricted the senders base, the higher the percent-wise effect of educating a single one of them. Should abuse at RIPE only be used by LIRs? In this case, users at deeper branches of the delegation tree would send to abuse at LIR and so forth, provided that valid abuse teams are available at those levels. (This approach is consistent with the currently advised hierarchical procedure for locating an abuse-mailbox for a given IP address.) >> Because we are in the process of setting this up, we welcome your >> feedback and any experiences you would like to share on this mailing >> list.
