If "they" are indeed only testing systems who connect to them, it's not
abuse, and I would not have complained. However, they scanned every
address in every netblock I own, looking for SMTP servers. That was
abuse, that was illegal in California, and I was shocked that you "allowed"
"them" to behave that way. Hopefully my inference is correct and "they"
are now scanning only the hosts which connect to participating SMTP servers.
