what i meant to say was "whenever you're getting repeat spam from the same
place, day after week after month, it's because some isp somewhere is a
slacker."  any given isp can be attacked and used to send outbound spam.
but not every isp can be used in this way over and over by the same bunch
of people.  to the second group, i say: "please shift the cost of dealing
with spam from your network, back inside your network."
