We were linked with a german reflector and we had the same pb,
this reflector is now down ......

You can spend time looking at your reflector but I think
the best way is to give in MOTD something like :
sexual .... is not allowed
and give the addresses of few "adults" reflectors known for that.

more, you'd better tell it to the net provider
and if you've got no response ,you can and must deny all a subnet because
of dynamically given addresses

P.S: And please, give us your denied accesses !!!!!
