Answer a hypothetical please Mat.
The Alice Springs Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to
Kittens has one PC, which gets a virus, and sends a single
spam before being wiped and reinstalled. SORBS lists its
IP. The Alice Springs Society for the Prevention of Cruelty
to Kittens sends you proof of a $50 donation to the
Australian Red Cross, wiping out half its annual budget,
and you delist its IP.
Mr Foobar, the next Scott Richter, sends out a billion spams
per day and rakes in millions of dollars. SORBS lists his IP.
Mr Foobar then sends you proof of a $50 donation to the
Australian Red Cross.
Do you delist Mr Foobar's IP or do you break your binding
unilateral contract with him?
