That's a pretty interesting thought, and it is pretty well addressed by 
paragraphs 376, 377, and 378.  Basically, the FCC found that spam 
blocking is a separate add-on information service.  It may be that the 
consumer now must opt-in to that service after clear disclosure of what 
the service entails.  The FCC even found that DNS is not an information 
service (paragraphs 366-371), and the argument is compelling.  This 
Commission is not technically illiterate, that's for sure, whether you 
agree with the R&O or not.
