Many sites send a relatively curteous mail to the site or isp that
summarizes that logs and states that you detected a portscan and consider
this bad behavior, and would like the site to check to ensure that they have
not been compromised.  This assists sites that are being used as jumping off
points to identify that they have been had.

It's important not to be discourteous, because you may incure the wrath of
some admins that will flame you to death.

As a new firewall admin I have a question for the white hats.  I log
port scans and do a whois to locate the ISP that owns the ip address.
My questions is what else
can/should be done.  I have no other reason to believe they got through
or committed any crime.  What else are you guys doing?  I  hope this is
not to far off topic.
