Everything

That's an odd remark

I was looking up IP address information on this (apparently) Romanian IP address range and I noticed something interesting.  In the remarks, sorrounded in an an ASCII art box, is the note “!! PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT OTHER PERSONS FOR THESE PROBLEMS !!”  Are they asking me not to contact the police, FBI, or anyone else if someone is using their network to abuse my machines?  Why on earth would anyone follow this stupid advice?   I don’t have any value or insight to add here, I just wanted to share it.
