On the contrary, I think you'd be a bad expert witness for  Ritz. I  
think I understood your position to be that the spammer left his keys  
on the seat and Ritz stepped in and drove the car around. I say he  
took a photograph of the illegal activities through the open door. He  
never opened the door, and he never went inside. He never disrupted or  
touched anything. And he used a camera and film that was approved for  
use by the "standards body".

You have axfr enabled for the f-root. axfr is not necessary for normal  
Internet access. Do I violate your privacy every time I do a  transfer  
from your server?
