Abuse is a simple program that helps people fight spam. It will "read" any e-mail header you indicate, go on-line and check the various NICs, open relay DBs... prepare/send an email to the spammer's ISP in order for your voice to be heard.
1. Improve processing of Abuse.net responses
2. Improve detection of AFRINIC IPs
3. Improve search for abuse contact addresses in whois responses
4. Remove "X-Spam" lines from the end of the email header before sending
a lart. This SpamAssassin/SpamPal/etc info could be harmful when the
lart is passed on to black-hats.
