are you suggesting that providers filter /16's because they were spammed from 
a host in some tiny portion of the block..?  i'd bet it wouldn't take two 
days, much less two weeks, to receive complaints from our own customer's (or 
any moderately large provider's) for that sorta thing...

one semi-solution would be to receive vixie's spam feed, at least it's as 
precise as possible .. and less headache.
