How can we prevent anyone else from ever enduring this again?  While we may
never stop it from ever happening, spammers (that's what we got hit by
today) are a dime a dozen and will do everything possible to hit an Inbox,
so how can we establish a protocol to immediate mitigate the effects of an
traffic-stopping advertisement?

I thought registering with IRRs and up-to-date information in ARINs WHOIS
was sufficient, apparently I was wrong.  Not everyone respects them, but
then again, they aren't very well managed (I've got several networks with
antiquated information I've been unable to remove, it doesn't impair us
normally, but its still there).

What can we do?  Better yet, how do we as a whole respond when we encounter
upstream providers who refuse to look at the facts and allow another to
stay down?
