How many others are nullrouting BT?

We've long been aware that BT *never* deals with spammers or DoS  
attacks that originate from their network, but a new issue has come  
to light.  BT has a number of users who are apparently testing out  
stolen credit card numbers from their network against stores of all  

3 months of attempts by US banks, US police departments, FBI, etc to  
get any action taken on these issues has gone nowhere.  BT is  
"protecting the interests of their users".  Meanwhile the stolen  
credit card attempts continue unabated.

We're considering null-routing all BT netblocks.  I'm wondering how  
many others have already come to the same conclusion?
