If I may.... Some *actually do*. They use open relays (*truly* open or 
"open to people on my network without AUTH" open, but that's a subject 
of another thread by Muhammad Nauman), faked return addresses on 
M-Sexchange servers that will bounce back to the intended victim, etc. - 
so the server's they're *abusing* *are* legit.

That's where things like rbl's, SA (with razor/pyzor/dcc/SARE), and 
other tools of the trade come in.
