I'd actually like to go as far as to say that the same can be said about
certain hosting provider's abuse departments, and RBL operators too...

Yet, if ACME Nuts & Bolts with a small VPS at some random hosting provider
sends ONE spam message, their servers are shutdown almost no questions
asked (never mind a good number of what, hundred thousands, over a period
of days) -sigh-

It's amazing how 'fair' the playing field on the Internet has become.
