Why We Might Contact You
You may have received email from firstname.lastname@example.org if :
- we have observed scanning, hacking, and/or other suspicious network traffic from a host and you are listed in a whois database as being the coordinator for the network block the host resides in, or
- your address was listed as the coordinator in a whois database as the upstream provider for the network block mentioned in #1. We will only send email to your address if we have either been unable to successfully contact your downstream client, or if we do not trust your downstream client because they do not appear to be an ISP.
