SC is not finding an abuse contact for the spam linked below. When I visit ripe.net and perform my own search I can find the abuse contact. It looks like there are two options when searching the database. One is "Search resource objects in all available databases" and the other is "Search RIPE Database only"  The abuse contact only comes up when selecting the later option, which also happens to be the default option.

Hi,

Since several years ago the ripe-whois has a flag, -b, that lists the abuse contact if there is one. Three out of 5 RIR whois servers support this. RIPE NCC, APNIC and AFRINIC while LACNIC and ARIN don't.

man whois | grep \\-b    
      -b      Return brief IP address ranges with abuse contact.


An example that lead me here was this.

Spamcop don't find abuse contact for 217.28.197.226
But

whois -h whois.ripe.net -b 217.28.197.226


gets you

inetnum:        217.28.197.224 - 217.28.197.239 
abuse-mailbox:  registry@tripnet.se
