As far as I'm concerned, Verio is the new AGIS...host to many
"bulletproof" commercial spammers.  Complaints to abuse@ and a host of
other verio addresses are apparently ignored since I keep receiving spams
from the same verio customers.  The worst one is:

Custom Offers (NETBLK-C052-128-121-16-224) C052-128-121-16-224
                                               128.121.16.224 - 128.121.16.255
Verio Data Centers - Sterling/Dulles (NETBLK-VRIO-128-121-000) VRIO-128-121-000
                                                  128.121.0.0 - 128.121.31.255
Verio Inc. (NETBLK-VRIO-128-121) VRIO-128-121    128.121.0.0 - 128.121.255.255

I would agree and would not recommend anyone buy anything from verio.
If you have circuit contracts up for renewal, ask your salesdroid about
verio's policy on spam, and take your business elsewhere.
