While I could enter a long debate into the legality of portscans, I won't.
Regardless what I think of them, I certainly would not expect you to tolerate
one. However, according to my logs the _only_ traffic sent to you was bound
for port 80 of 'randomkeystrokes.com' which hardly constitutes a portscan and
considering that this is quite a common service I would consider it acceptable
usage. (for those with privacy in mind, our uplink was getting a random usage
determination, I can't tell you what source ip the traffic came from for example)
What I do not consider acceptable is blatant defamation on such a high volume
list as this. Also, given the nature of an internet cafe I hardly think it
appropriate to throw out an accusation like this.
If you want to continue this further please contact me off-list.
