So in other words if an fcn host is found to be originating denial of
service attacks, you suggest we contact the local police and FBI rather
than ringing you up and asking you to disable their ongoing attacks.

And in the time it takes to process a court order you will continue to
allow those hosts to originate smurf/pingfloods etc.

Gotcha. So noted.

So we now know that when an fcn host is conducting denial of service
attacks, we should immediately start the paperwork filing for criminal
negligence and punitive damages ahead of time.
