I don't ignore abuse reports, and I've found that Tor's boilerplate
abuse templates almost always provide a good response. So it's just a
matter of copying and pasting the relevant section and sending it to them.


To be honest I could automate the responses with a few scripts, but that
would require setting up my own MTA and that's more hassle than is worth
it. My exit nodes have a reduced exit policy, and with that I only get
about one or two abuse reports a month, which is manageable manually.
I'd imagine the ones who operate exit nodes with no restrictions
probably get a fair few more notices.
