On the other hand, the people whos business model involves the phrases
"peering" and "selling transit" have little incentive to do anything to help a
downstream that's spewing spam/viruses/etc. Particularly fun if you managed to

There's also the issue of pink contracts for spammers, but that's another sordid tale...
