Every time I see a post like the one below on this list, I can't help but
feel like big brother has infiltrated the list.

There's no mess like the ones government will create for you.

No more excuses, people..

Sad fact is that there are zillions of excuses.  Unfortunately I  
suspect the only way we're going to make any progress on this will be  
for laws to be passed (or lawsuits to be filed) that impose a  
financial penalty on ISPs through which these attacks propagate.
