Being blacklisted by Spews

Hello Hansel and all,
Thanks for your comment and just to clarify, I am not speaking with regards to Exodus or any specific ISP.  This is a general question that I wanted to raise to the community for feedback.
It is interesting because a lot of the feedback is saying that the ISP would just disconnect the Customer.  What if the Customer was sending a lot of mail from an address because they provided newsletter distribution services?

Terminate customers who violate our AUP.   We terminate customers on the
first SPAM complaint and have never had any IP address/block ever listed
in SPEWS or any other blacklist.   Once you terminate the Spammers
you'll over time fall off the blacklists. 

Note that Exodus is listed quite frequently in: which is often how folks get into SPEWS.

Would be nice if Exodus started to crack down on spammers.  It is a bad
business practice to host them and ultimately will drive away your
legitimate customers.

What do other ISPs in the community do if they have Customers who get
the ISPs address space blacklisted by spews?

Thanks very much,
