We disconnect after contact if they remain infected after 72 hours or once we determine contact won't be possible.

User's are responsible for their own computers. We understand that many of them need the service in order to fix their systems. However, a line has to be drawn at some point. I want the 135 blocks removed, and in order to do that, the malicious packets must be reduced to a minimum.
