Efnet bans Hetzner IP space

Casually idling on Efnet when...

stew [~stew@RovTech.tk] has quit [Due to abuse Hetzners IP space have been 
banned on this server. Please contact support@hetzner.de. (2013/4/8 20.11)]

I'm not sure what's going on here.

Update 10/04/2013:

As this was a K-Line, I reconnected via another server. Some time later I was, again, banned.

00:19 [arcti] -!- You are banned from this server- Due to abuse Hetzners IP
          space have been banned on this server. Please contact
          support@hetzner.de. (2013/4/8 20.11)

More information can be found here and, from their explanation, it sounds entirely justified.

However, I do not like how they handled this situation. Perhaps it was simply a mistake, lack of thought or communication, but the absence of any explanation made me more frustrated with Efnet than with either the abuser or Hetzner.
