Take a look at RIMA-TDE.  That's the Spanish telecom, a grossly
mismanaged national ISP.

As with Wanadoo (another massive and massivly mismanaged major EU ISP),
RIMA-TDE has developed a reputation for doing nothing (other than
bouncing) abuse requests.

It's now got the choice to make between cleaning up its own act or
having a large number of peering nets clean up its act for it.  By
dropping all traffic.

IDP has worked in the past.  It still works.
