    Yeah, I got a funny email from an ISP after I reported a bunch of abuses which originated from several IP adresses serviced by that ISP. It was addressed from windowsupport at(@) microsoftwindows.com or something like that, contained an attachment, and the IP address of the sender was from the ISP.

    It stated that I had a virus affecting my windows op sys and to click on the attachment to cure the virus and update my windows or else I would continually get these warning emails. I wonder how they knew my windows op sys was affected and needed to be updated since I have a MAC.

    Funny thing is, the IP address of the sender was in the same block of IP addresses that I was complaining about. Methinks the ISP and the spammer are one in the same.
