I misworded that. I didn't mean to imply he was engaging in any of those 
activities. Only that anyone doing so using a mail domain or public IP could 
get the domain or IP blacklisted. I had people at a large Church I used to work 
for using p2p to get hi def versions of all the movies and music they wanted, 
AND were SHARING it with others. A cease and desist letter was not sent to us, 
but rather to our ISP telling them that unless the ISP shut US down, they would 
blacklist the ENTIRE ISP! Talk about digital vigilantes. 

Fortunately, I was able to find and eliminate the culprits and prove to the ISP 
and the legal entities involved that I had done so, and they relented.
