How about stopping the insane policy of blocking and banning ranges of IP's or entire ISP's due to abuse by a few people - it doesnt stop the abusers and it means honest users cannot actually get on.

After the ISP takes care of the abusers and promises that the abuse will at least reduce, if not stop, they'll get unblocked.

The ISP in question HAS no abusers that anyone can point to - the undernet blocking of ~*211.*.*.* means that this ISP, which has a few ranges in this class, has users blocked by them - Identd does NOT get around this (despite that being the common suggestion) and it seems discussion on this results in the thread being locked and emails advise you to get another ISP.

If the ISP was at fault id agree but in this case its just bad luck to them and the users on that class.

IF anyone reports to an ISP which is blocked their problem (not being able to register due to something they did not do), then the ISP will e-mail to object@undernet.org for help.
