Hello again,

Because it is needed! And it is not changing our working model/biz model
in either way. It is helping the idea of "Global Reporting" and it's
helping the idea of collaboration between ISPs and network owners.

I'm pushing this idea, because I'm certain about it. I have seen that
collaboration works, that Global Reporting works, that publishing the
correct abuse handling contacts and handling the incoming abuse
complaints helps network owners to clean up their network.

In addition I have not heard any arguments that told me it is a bad
idea, quite the contrary. And the argument we have done it that way for
the last 15 years is not an argument, it's an excuse for doing nothing.

So I'm absolutely happy to hear your arguments about this proposal and
discuss with you and any other person why it is important to implement
this proposal.

Just because it is like it is at the moment does first of all not imply
that it is good. And in addition it does not imply that it has to be
that way in future.
