while i'm not the one posting it, i do see these summaries and i also see
much of the raw data that's being summarized, in real time, as it's found
and shared. AS owners/operators who want to get the data in real time have
already been told to send <email@example.com> some e-mail asking for it. the
summaries are primarily useful for C&C's that are still alive a month later
even though plenty of notices have been sent to the relevant NOC's. in
other words it's sort of like defcon's "wall of sheep". i like the approach.
