 I've said a few times what abuse means. It means things like SQL
 injection, comment spamming, harvesting email addresses and HTTP DoS that
 exploits slowness on a web server to knock it over.

 They publish all their data and you can look up any IP to see what they've
 seen from that IP.  I'm not sure how to make progress on this then. Do you
 have an alternative source of information that would help measure abuse
 coming through Tor?
