I don't know about Register.com's opinion but I dare say the statement
above isn't very helpful to me as an admin.
When you say "has been a source of spam" is there a time frame involved?
Was this in the last week? Month? Year? When you say "register.com" has
been the source do you mean a) their netblocks b) their mail servers or c)
partners acting on their behalf?
You also state that complaints have been ineffective. Again is there a
time frame? Did anyone get back to you? Did they investigate? Did they
give you a reason for ignoring or doing nothing about your complaint?
I ask this not because I want to know but because if someone from the
company came here to address the issue then perhaps we should give them as
much information as possible (After all- you have a contact now) Simply
saying that "it's pretty well-known" doesn't really help.
I frankly doubt they would bother posting here with "let us know" if they
had no intention of looking into it- this isn't exactly a group likely to
be pacified by empty promises. (It's also possible that in the past the
right people never found out- or that there are new people there who take
the issue more seriously).

I don't think they are going to claim there was never a problem-
unfortunately sometimes the marketing folks don't consult or listen to
their technical folks- it's happened at a lot of companies. That said- I
haven't had spam from a register.com netblock in a long time. Then again
maybe I've just been lucky.
