Not much.  You've never been postmaster for a large organization, have
you?  In particular, never tried to deal with abuse issues for larger
than a trivial site the way you suggest (phone, paper mail)?

I'm tempted to ask the same about trying to find someone clued behind
the front-line phone-drones at a large organization, but I suspect
there are at least a few organizations out there that do it right, so
that might be an invalid challenge for the purpose, even though I've
never run into such a one.
