Probably the fault not so much of complicated e-mails, but fatigue
from the flood of stoopid Sam Spade (and similar, but I remember
SS with some extra deep sighs) e-mails falsely claiming one has
spam responsability.

For an extreme case, try running a multi-ccTLD name server, and spice it
with some RIR allocated /8's served off the same box...

Us at the top aren't very attracted by the lack of RIR entries for
allocations, nor do we appreciate b0rken reverse. Blame where blame
is due, please.

The only involvement the ISP with the leaf node customer should do,
is to act as proxy for the clueless. You are paid by the customer,
so take care of that. You have a billing address (or are otherwise
not that able to bill them) so there is a point of contact. Use it.
