depending on the severity of the attack you want to report to the attacker's
ISP, they (the ISP admins) might send you a reply, detailing the things they
have done to find out who attacked you, if you're lucky. However, in most cases
you will get no answer at all, or just some automatic "we're working on

Good mail addresses to write to are root@, abuse@, postmaster@, webmaster@ or
even info@.

If you really have something urgent and alarming to report, try to find a phone
number of a responsible person (tech-c, admin-c) and directly phone him/her up.
