Hello Mally and others

I thought I should contribute the standard replies that we use at APNIC for
spam and hacking (see below).

Our replies are quite short and both refer to the FAQ info we have gathered
at http://www.apnic.net/info/faq/abuse

Our standard replies (which we do often modify for particluar cases) have
evolved a lot over the past couple of years in response to the feedback that
comes back to us. The current ones are generally quite well received and
seem to involve less back and forth correspondence than some earlier
formulations.

Regards

- Gerard Ross

Thank you for your information; however, the spam you have received did not
come from APNIC, nor was it relayed through our servers.

However, you are welcome to search the APNIC Whois Database to track down
the source of the spam and find contact details of the relevant network
administrators.

I hope this information will help.
