Why not write a real-time script and loop the querier right back to his own self...

This sort of reminded me of the days of "bandwidth raping" where others used someone's own bandwidth to their own disadvantage.

Akin to a mailing list asking someone to configure their options so autoresponding "Out of the office" replies don't annoy. Rarely works. In the case of system administration/network administration, the industry shifts so much whereas someone who managed a machine is likely not working for that company any more. From my experiences, I've seen the horrible documentation(ing (Bushism?)) companies maintain so its likely unknown to these offenders.
