We typically make customer contact when a customer shows up as a regular on our 1Gbyte Honor Roll (a daily list of everyone with >= 1Gbyte in or out in the past 24 hrs). Often we find they are infected, but sometimes P2Pers. We crank down their CIR if they don't clean up until they are "off" that 1GByte list.
