I'm getting absolutely hammered right now by an IP address that belongs to Bellsouth.net
(The IP address has been autobanned, but they are retrying 100 or so times a minute)
I tried to email the Bell South abuse email address, only for my mail to them to be blocked...

WTF??

Use firewall. Standard procedure. I block address and forget it, if same address is repeatedly banned by fail2ban.
