Spam Support ISPs: What Criteria Is Used?
How do certain sites wind up on Spamhaus lists? For this particular list, Spamhaus ranked these sites according to known spam issues related to each site. The ones at the top of the list reported the greatest number of issues. It's best to avoid these sites altogether, but if you do find yourself on one of these sites, walk away as soon as possible.
If spam is such a problem and it is a known problem, why do sites like the ones listed above still exist? Spamhaus puts it this way: “Spam continues to plague the Internet because a small number of large Internet Service Providers sell service knowingly to professional spammers for profit, or do nothing to prevent spammers operating from their networks.” That's not good at all.
