i have some knowledge of the situations at Sprint, Verio, and Qwest (who
you don't mention but others do mention.) there are functioning abuse
staffs at all three providers, and they are making serious efforts at
cleaning up messes that were permitted to exist for far too long. they need
a little time, but they are terminating spammers as they put the cases

complaints to sprint, verio, and qwest will not be ignored, however, you do
need to be aware that the situations that are being dealt with are so bad,
that of necessity triage is being applied and it may take awhile before
they develop the reputations for responsiveness that an outfit like
rcn currently has.

give 'em a little time, guys. they're working on it. complaint to abuse@
like you're supposed to, and give them a chance to deal with it.
