Depends on the nature of the abuse.
If you're blocking his packets, and he isn't jumping to a new address
block, then your problem is solved. If the ISP never terminates his
account, why should you care? He's already out of your hair.
If his ISP gives him a new address block in order to get out from under
your filters, then that's something else. Now the ISP has taken
specific action in support of the spam. At this point, but not before,
escalating the filters to cover the rest of the ISP's address space
would make sense.
