email to the person responsible for the network may help with this
situation, That, of course can be obtained through a reverse look-up
of the ip number with the domain name service.
!csh

for instance, given a number like 141.214.x.x, a lookup gives:
214.141.in-addr.arpa origin = med.umich.edu
mail addr = hostmaster.med.umich.edu
serial=950794, refresh=28800, retry=14400, expire=2419200, min=14400

so mail to hostmaster@med.umich.edu would let the folks know something was up.

Also, there should be some message that tells people that type of activity
is not welcome and they should go elsewhere.
