Hi Steve,

we get a lot of those, too. We've talked to them about what we do
about half a year ago and asked them to consider to stop sending
dozens of abuses to us each day. As they didn't seem to be okay with
Tor, though, they said they wouldn't stop sending those, so we started
just filtering and ignoring them.
