 > You don't have other threat scores for other IP addresses? You could
 look at the country wide proxy list that Wikipedia keeps for X-Forwarded-
 For style proxies - for example. Though I'm surprised - you don't have
 *any* data on carrier grade NAT IP ranges?

 Nope. We do not have special treatment for groups of IP addresses other
 than Tor and only for Tor because of widespread complaints from Tor users.
 We have scores and data for individual IP addresses.

 > We publish a great deal of data in a privacy preserving manner:


 > Could you please make some comparisons of the abuse in question? Is
 CloudFlare really just using Project Honeynet data here?

 We are not just using Project Honeypot but it's an input. I'm using it
 here because all of us can look at their data and draw conclusions about
 any IP address or group of IP addresses.
