No, the rest of the world mostly just don't care. It's not difficult for 
an ISP/provider to block outgoing spam. Many ISPs manage to run clean 
operations and stay off blacklists. Do you think that's just luck?

It might be annoying for him. It's not particularly annoying for me or 
the other millions of people who were being bombarded with the spam his 
servers are constantly spewing out.

The problem is his servers are spewing spam. That is the problem that 
continues and that is the problem that needs to be addressed. Mark's 
situation is merely the symptom.

Hostmonster obviously have no real interest in addressing it otherwise 
it wouldn't still be an ongoing issue. So as I said, he is irrelevant - 
he's just collateral damage in a much bigger battle.
