Your history lesson seems to be a good argument to go after the spamverized
sites ala spamvampire to 'discourage' them by hitting them in their wallet.
Sure sometimes the spamvertized sites maybe a victim of unauthorized
spamming. And some of the time an innocent customer also connected there
would suffer with a slow connection. In that case they should talk to your
ISP to get rid of spamvertized sites, and if the ISP is not responsive, find
a place for the honest and innocent website with a honest ISP.
Bye the bye, it seems that spamvampire does produce results, as
126.96.36.199 is not found anymore at least from my part of the world.
