When I see my stats I see a lot of DigitalOcean, and they are all abuse IP adresses, it always comes from DigitalOcean and no Linode, No Vultr it is always DigitalOcean. Or DigitalOcean has their security thing not complete or people can create to easy droplets and abuse them. I am really sick of seeing DigitalOcean IP abuse adresses in my stats.

The bigger the provider, the more abuse. Did you try contacting the published abuse contact?

it is also funny when I create a droplet, I always check the ip, they are always blacklisted on some way, when I do the same at Linode, it is all green. wonder how that can be…

that is not true, when I checked an ip address from DigitalOcean it is report for Abuse, but it is also an endless wave, there are too many of them
