Mouse,

So, in short, we are not the right people to whom to report this
issue.

You are *exactly* the right people to report it to.  That you are
determined to wash your hands of the responsibility that goes with your
authority is in large part why RIPE space is so abuse-ridden; that
ICANN and the IANA are letting you get away with it is why it has
continued that way for so long (and, because they do the same nothing
with other RIRs, why the rest of the world has similar problems).

Without getting into a forward and back about this, at present this
working group is not the right place to report such matters.  Whether
that changes or not in the future is a different matter, but right now
it is the case.

The aim in my reply was not to wash my hands of anything, but rather
to let the original correspondent know the situation.

Regards,

Brian.
