I guess you were lucky then, the addresses we were smurfed from had no 
related website, and the phone # on the whois was outdated.

When I finally did manage to get a hold of a network engineer they didnt 
seem particularly interested in hearing about the problem. Hence it took 
3 months of constant calling to get their smurf amps shut down.

And they *still* dont have a working [email protected] or [email protected] which imho is 
simpy irresponsible for such an organization. Someone should get sacked.
