It is off-topic but...
While I agree it can and has happen, I do not believe that it is that
common-at least in my experience. I am one who believes in expaning blocks
to include large swaths if IP space where abuse it rampant. Our policy is we
LART 100% of the time for spam and block that IP. If the ISPs postmaster
and/or abuse does not work we submit them to rfc-ignorant.org (an RBL we
also use). if they do nothing, we do nothing also and they stay blocked.
If we get another spam in the same C-equiv we block the entire C. Heck, I
block entire countries.
