I apologize for my wording if anyone took my comments as against your
project.  Any way to automate response to network abuse is a "Good
Thing" (tm).

My complaint is that registrars are locking up more and more information
so it is harder to track the bad guys.  The spammers already have
everyone's email addresses from their spyware and list trading.  Keeping
netblock and domain owners private helps the bad guys way more than it
hurts the good guys.
