The theory goes, that as a customer suffering the inconvenience of others 
in your address space being insecure or causing issues, you exert pressure 
on your hosting provider to ensure that they only host reputable and 
secure operations, and take swift action when problems occur.  If your 
hosting provider isn't doing that, then you maybe consider taking your 
business elsewhere.
