ARF standardizes the report format used for abuse reports. If the
ISP is going to use the feedback loop for each "this is spam" click,
that will only generate unnecessary reports. Still, it is not up to
the ISP to say that the particular complaint is about transactional mail.
There are other means to make the problem manageable if the ISP and
sender agree that the message is not abuse.
