Re: Complaint of the week: Ebay abuse mail (slightly OT)

I submitted ebay.com to rfc-ignorant.org for this RFC violation almost a
year ago (which they of course accepted):
Companies like this could simply care less. If you don't run a mail
system with "customers" expecting to receive mail from ebay then I'd
recommend blocking ebay.com. That would include their subsidiary,
paypal.com, which BTW is also listed on RFCi. At the least I'd score
their mail against the RFCi RHSBLs and add a score of 1.

To add to the eternally annoying list of companies that ignore
abuse@ mail... ebay now requires that you fill in their lovely
little web form to send them a note. Even if, say, you're
trying to let them know about another scam going around that
tries to use the machine www.hnstech.co.kr to extract people's
credit card information.
Has anyone had success in convincing companies that this is just
A Bad Idea (ignoring abuse mail), and if so, how did you manage
to do it?
Sorry for the slightly non-operational content, but I've had it with
ebay on this one.
