Here about 99% are not valid or interesting.

Which is to say, I had one small burst once caused by an infected
customer machine which we got shut off fast and fixed.

The rest are virtually all just people on mailing lists hosted here
sending each and every completely on-topic posting to TOS.

I suppose I should figure out some way to track them so I can boot
them off those lists since AOL removes all identifying information.

Apparently the ratio of valid/invalid AOL notifications is a usefull indicator on the cleanliness of the relevant network.

Some might suggest that large amounts of untrackable inaccurate complaints are themselves abuse.
