What I want to know is how you think that one person from an alternative
effort is going to know which keys we have tested by running one client
for a little while? The keyblocks I get don't seem to be in sequence, so
how is a few blocks-to-test going to tell them what space we have or have
not tried?

Exactly what "offense" have they committed?

We should probably respond to this offense by starting to assign
different
numbers as well as blocking requests from their domain. I'm
uncomfortable
knowing that they're even allowed to puruse our mailing list.
