I'd point at the IETF/INCH-WG work for a standard [email protected] reporting
process/format... If you send hundreds or thousands of reports to an ISP
abusedesk (or ISPs' abusedesks) a standard machine parsable format is a
key ingredient.

I think that atleast one ISP would love to see standards formatted reports
about it's users ([email protected]), provided that the appropriate information
was included.
