I think a list of sites that refuse to deal with troublemakers
(with details) would be extremely useful. If people want to use it to
blackhole traffic, that would be their decision.
Personally, I agree.
Even more importantly, you could check it before choosing an ISP
or provider to be sure that your provider is running a clean ship. That
way you don't get inconvenienced by other provider's defensive acts
against your provider.
As an added bonus, you have some more assurance that your provider
will come to your aid if you are mail bombed, ping flooded, or hacked in
some other way. Providers that deal effectively with their own customers
when they create trouble are much more likely to assist their own
customers when they are attacked.
Indeed, Just get it right so that the press and anyone else doesn't
get the wrong idea thats all I'm saying really!
