I don't think I've ever gotten a reply apart from the automated one.  I use
the uu.net@abuse.net address which does expand to fraud@uu.net

The problem is that a particular dynamic IP can be used by any of the
customers of any ISP that uu.net serves.  They have nationwide POP network,
and big ISP's just purchase access to it.  

What worries me is people like Guy who are forced not to use their ISP's mail
servers because of the stupid rules with regards to the from: line.  I guess
this tells me we are still not ready to block all of uu.net dyn-IP ranges.
