Please fee free to update that page under the appropriate region heading
if your ex-ISP is not listed.  Laws and practice and availability vary
quite a bit with country and ISP.  I think there was an ISP policy

See also this blog posting for prevention of problems in future:

FWIW i also get about one abuse notice a month for my node that carries
about 300KB/s or 1.6TB/month.  They have been about DMCA, spam, and IRC.
