Re: [anti-spam-wg] Non-cooperation of RIPE ISP in investigating report of email abuse (spam)

Maybe it is a good idea to look for a solution for the issue with incorrect 
abuse details listed in the RIPE NCC whois database. An other policy or even 
an other procedure can do the job I think. But off course it is important 
that we (RIPE/the community) have to agree with it, so it would take a lot 
off time to solve the issue.

@ der Mouse:
Did you try abuse@localhost for the domain that is listed in the rDNS (if 
available) or contact information listed on the website off the LIR?

With kind regards,

The point here is that we, as the community, need to define what 'it' is
(and what 'it' is not). Once we make 'it' an official policy, then the ones
who are being paid will do their job and implement it. They (in this case
the RIPE NCC) are not paid to write policies. Writing a policy is an unpaid
task for community members (but I know that the RIPE NCC will provide
assistance when needed)

To reduce the time/cost/work of writing a policy, you can try to work with
other community members to spread the work.
