Reading most of the comments posted here, I see that most, if not all, want
a clear accountability from the networks that provide our link to the
Internet. Certainly, the RIPE NCC Report Form is a good start.
But as so many have stated the lack of accountability and sheer indifference
on behalf of some networks in handling Abuse / Spam reports. A case in point
that I like to bring to everyone's attention is Maxis Communications Bhd, in
Since 2009, I have traced and reported Abuse violations to Maxis
Communications Bhd abuse team [ABUSE@maxi...], but I just discovered
that this network had ignored all my previous violations reports, as I just
received the following "Not read" and "deleted without being read"
confirmation notices in my inbox:
was deleted without being read on Thu, 12 Apr 2012 19:12:51 +0800
As these confirmations show, a network like Maxis Communications Bhd can
simply choose not to respond, and completely ignore network violations
reports, and after a few years [yes, YEARS] delete such reports as if
nothing had happened.
To be fair, I have copied this network's technical contact Muhadzir Abdul
Majid [zay@maxi...] as well as their Whois only contact, Chiau Tik Tan
[cttan@maxi...] so that they can for themselves what actually happens
when someone reports and sends an abuse report to Maxis Communications Bhd.
