There was a guy once who thought he could bypass the usual AUP and TOS
of his ISP by running his very own nntp news sever for intentional abuse
Let's say I let a 'few' people in the ISP concerned (board level people,
senior tech management and their publicity company) know about this
after a reasonable period of reconciliation that failed.
I got the reply within 12 hours .... "this account has been

And/or the news provider. I've dealt with the Free University of Berlin
before. The Chancellor doesn't like getting abuse reports his techs ignored.
Just like here then.
Well, like I said, I have some experience in these matters. I learnt from the
best - fighting the toughest.
