I think we should leave this alone.
If I was an ISP and some guy call John Doe, who happens to be the talk of the
town on SPAM-L as an ISP hopping SPAMMER, were to ask me to sponsor him,
not only would it be no, but (fill in many choice words here).

I don't think this redress is a good idea. An ISP just like any other business
should be allowed to choose who they want to service.
It is a bigger deal in the US than elsewhere, I believe it is a federal law....
