Please get back to us in a week or so with info on your abuse
complaint rate with the new policy. I'll update
with the policy if it does in fact drastically reduce your abuse
complaint raint.

(Though I suspect the SWIP will also help greatly. I am beginning to
believe that these abuse-bot companies deliberately pick on new
hosters who do not have their own IP allocation specified to bully
them off the net).
