it's up to you. You should really report it, if they're working through many
hosts, more evidence means they're more likely to lose their account.

Fwiw, I quite like http://aris.securityfocus.com - it takes your snort logs,
anonimizes them, and will then correlate your attacks with other sysadmins.
It'll even fire off some emails to the relevant ISPs if you deem it worthy.
