They have been threatened with legal action so many times now that I
seriously doubt that they even pay any attention to it. They are
not doing the actual blocking; but rather supplying a list of known IP
ranges from which SPAM originates. Personally, I think getting on your
ISP's case and getting them to monitor SPAM on their network and deal
with it quickly and decisively would be more appropriate. Yes,
collateral damage does occur occasionally; however that is just a fact
of life.
