If the one person you want to visit doesn't answer to your ringing you ring
all the 5670895 bells on a high-rise building whih brings you nowhere if
the person doesn;t want to see you and doesn't open the door.

Perhaps if lusers would send abuse reports more precisly various ISP's
would start answering again. And not answering (besides auto replies)
doesn't mean they don't take actions.

I don't answer to complaints about bounces for emails that are injected
via backup MX servers and rejected at the best MX and thus the backup MX
generates the bounce. These are a nuissance if the sender is faked, but
it is no "abuse", but how the mail system works.
