For some spam reports I'm indeed a bit nervous exposing too much. I mean, it is just too easy for a
spammer to set up his own abuse desk, getting a handle on who saw him. This would make that domain
maybe more attractive for them, at least, that's my theory. How do you know that all spam reports go
to people that you trust?
