Sadly, I cannot say this is true. While I currently don't know how many
people actually honor this, I know that there is a significant amount
people who either ignore this handle or don't know about it. The range
is big: From private users, cheap free Tools to big business making
money by "protecting" against phishing etc. Especially the last party is
very reluctant on actually "fixing" anything when contacted, they just
keep on ignoring our Abuse Handles. (Cheap) Desktop/Private Protection
Utilities are not a lot better...
