I looked up your Org entry, you should add an Abuse POC handle, you only
have an Admin POC Handle and 2 Tech POC Handles. By not having an
abuse handle your not telling people that you want abuse complaints sent
somewhere else. Without an Abuse POC I would probably send abuse
complaints to your Tech POC Handles, because if you don't publish your
abuse contact information why would I assume you even have one?
I suspect if you publish an Abuse POC you will see abuse complaints go
"Abuse POC Handle: Indicate the ARIN POC handle of a contact
responsible for handling operational aspects of the acceptable or
appropriate uses of the allocated network. The abuse POC may not make
modifications to the allocated network registration. "
