THE NEW STANDARD

RFC's (Proposed Standards) on 'Cryptographic Message Syntax'. RFC 2142, which specifies that "abuse" is the correct address for every domain to receive abuse reports -- whether those reports pertain to abuse *by* the domain (or its customers, etc.) or *of* the domain (or its customers).
This is not only specified in the RFC, but it's a well-known best practice, and has been for years.
Unfortunately, many domains have chosen to ignore this -- or to "support" it in a way that renders it effectively unusable.  Those methods include:

Happily, There are some exceptions to this: some operations (correctly) consider every abuse complaint as a possible indicator of a security emergency, requiring immediate attention from senior personnel until resolved.  Unsurprisingly, these well-run operations don't have to field many abuse complaints, because the same diligence and professionalism that allows them to respond promptly and effectively also enables them to pro-actively address many issues *before* abuse actually occurs.  But unfortunately, these are the exceptions; the rule is that for most operations, handling abuse traffic is a reluctant afterthought at best, and thus we have...what we have.
