One friend got shut down by Rogers at one point. We (I) called Rogers 
(which is when we found out Rogers was the culprit since my hunting 
for the problem internally appeared fruitless). Although we did the 
standard Rogers support loop the loop until we got to the right 
department (eCare?), we were able to request the logs, for next time, 
by supplying an e-mail address. 'Unfortunately' it never happened 
again, so there were no logs to receive. Something had been scanning 
the net, starting with 0.0.0.0 and up, so I put blocks to such 
addresses. (I have since found out this would be called 'bogon' 
addresses.)

Once I found out about specifying an e-mail address to them, I told 
another friend who had been similarly hit to give them their e-mail 
address. Never heard anything further from them, though.

You might just try blocking 0/7. Rogers may not be too smart in terms 
of why they're calling some things bad (explanatory wise) - they run 
their stuff, come up with 'bad', and voila. And all they can tell you 
is 'bad' - nothing more specific to help you get a handle on what the 
heck they're talking about. So don't take them literally, try and 
figure out the nature of the behaviour they're talking about.
