Regarding SSH I have only received complaints from sysads complaining
about unauthorized connection attempts to port 22 getting caught in
firewalls, sometimes even with no SSH service listening on port 22.

DirPort, Reverse DNS etc., and the sysads don't even bother to do a
reverse lookup before sending abuse complaints I will not bother
wasting my time on answering them. It is no secret how to properly
secure internet connected systems, and in all cases their firewalls
etc. obviously works, so my message to them, if any, would be "Welcome
to the internet...".
Apart from ssh brutes I have had a few autogenerated complaints from
