AWS imposes "email sending limitations", by default, on all EC2 accounts. 
Anyone who wants those limitations removed has to fill out a form and make 
a use case to AWS Support.

AWS also says they work with ISPs and "Internet anti-SPAM orgs" like 
Spamhaus.

That sounds a bit more than "doesn't care about it", no?
