:: What do you suggest? Shoot them at Dawn? :-) 

Not all of them.  Just shoot the first one and the rest will 
pay attention! ;-)

:: We don't have a runaway spamming problem on the list.

A lot of it has to do with naming-n-shaming, which he did.  
Instead of a firing squad, it's a financial punishment squad.
That's the only place it hurts them and if made public it's
even more effective.

:: And your proposed solution is?

Let the naming-n-shaming continue, rather than supporting the
slimy spammer's position!  There's not a naming-n-shaming
problem here, either.

:: Prohibit NANOG members from buying their products?

No, we will do that ourselves.


ps.  I feel like I'm in a different universe when NANOG folks 
are supporting the spammer's side on the list!
