Well, I can understand about not running behind blocklists! But
since so many posters seem unaware of it, I thought it was not
readily available unless the situation seemed to need an /expert/
and /informed/ opinion about a particular IP address.
IOW, it really is worth it to try to get the poster to understand
at least a little of what he needs to be looking for before giving
him the address - to make your job easier. Is that correct?
Otherwise, unless they asked for opinions, the first post ought to
be "this is the address."
(the post in question was the one who asked for a phone number
Joseph or, in that case, when he was so hopelessly lost - perhaps
because of a language barrier - was it better relations to just
give him the email address?)
