Re: Tracking down a vandalizer who's faking his IP

Does anyone here have any experience tracking down a faker such as this
and could you provide any tips on how one can effectively talk to
and coordinate with the ISP's at the other end?

Don't bother wasting your time.

You can try and get ahold of someone at the ISP who handles abuse and/or security incidents, but I doubt anything serious will come of it. It sounds like you've already performed most of these steps, so unless you have the time to continuously follow up you may have to suck it up. Perhaps legal action is a recourse available to you, but I'd rather you not tie up the legal system.
