Is the newsletter confirmed opt-in - and can the customer _prove_ that this
is the case? Then neither SPEWS nor anyone else (other than competitors!) is
going to have a problem with the newsletter, and it will not have caused a
listing. If not, then they're spammers, and the ISP should kick them off -
or the ISP will suffer the consequences, as will anyone else dumb enough to
do business with a spam-friendly ISP.
