It is not spam we are talking about, it is bad invalid network packets, bad web traffic probing exploits, bad port traffic looking for open network ports.
All of this originates in countries not using best practice abuse process, no communication with route config errors, no communication when ddos seen.
In effect it is a war on bad traffic and country blocks will be in the only way to make people take notice of this problem.
