Really? Name three.

Ok, you've made an assumption and an assertion based on that: you assert
that hostmonster, with its millions of domains (I asked tech support,
that's what they told me) is "spewing" out spam. Prove that assertion.
Esp. since I get blocked, on and off, for a day or two, and then sometimes
not for a week, and sometimes not for a month. My take, from this, is that
it is *not* "spewing out spam", but rather that some sleazebag sets up
shop, or someone gets infected, sends it out, they finally find it and
shut them down.

So, justify your assertion with counter-evidence.
