Do we really want ISPs to become the enforcers for every Internet application someone may use or abuse? Webmail, online game cheating, blog complaints, auctions disputes, instant message harrasment, music sharing, online gambling, etc.
Whether the problem is bad enough for an ISP to put in automated filtering instead of dealing with abuse reports on a case by case basis, is a call for the ISP to make.
For example, egress filtering / bcp38, port 25 blocking, route filters to stop martian packets and leaked routes from propogating .. or network level filtering slammer and other worm traffic for that matter.
