Re: Wrong priority

To an extent you're right, but also wrong.

They need to insulate customer B from nefarious customer A as far as possible, that's true.

But if customer A gets pwnd and the attacker ultimately manages to get a block of IPs added to a RBL then, even if customer A leaves, that may effect customer C (who's been unlucky enough to be allocated one of those IPs).

Would I lose sleep? No. But there is definitely some worth in trying to educate customers not to be complete tools when it comes to security.
