One could ask the exact same question about Amazon -- which, as of
the moment, is the worst spam-supporting operation on the planet:

Are they merely incompetent? negligent? stupid? lazy?  Or are they
taking payoffs and bribes from spammers?  Of course from outside there's
no way to know.  But this is not how responsible, ethical, professional
operations behave: those operations promptly read, analyze, answer, and
act on every single abuse report that they get.
