      We're an ISP. They were mailbombing a customer of ours (bouncing spam back to them through open relays). Apparently either a disgruntled ex-employee, or someone who got burned by them in one way or another. I don't have all the details sadly.

      Mostly I say "send out a message". I mean, what he was doing was illegal. But then again, I can't see the courts coming down too hard on him - the damages were a few hours work for a few people every time he launched an attack (which he did quite a few times). In all probably a few thousand pounds. I see far more heinous crimes being committed in the world.
