I should hope that if you *ever* experience trouble with a site that you
contact the site administrator as listed in WHOIS.
Note, however, that this is not always effective. Often times, the site
administrator may not care. In my personal experience, this has happened
at least once; I've been told that the site is a "known hacker hangout" by
other admins. Maybe, maybe not; I cc:'d cert on every piece of mail.
They were most interested.
