Re: This is easy.
Brian, you say that it isn't your fault. You compare it to a gun-shop selling a gun that kills someone.
But the gun-shop isn't the one that shoots them. If the spam messages are coming from your server, or advertising a website hosted on your server, than you *are* the one that's shooting them.
You are apparently giving away free access, similar to Hotmail and others. Dealing with the spammers is an expense. If you do a good job, then the expense is all yours. If you do a lousy job, the problem gets spread out to other people because you didn't do your job.
Don't be surprised when you find your IP's and your domains in various blacklists. Nobody wants to deal with a provider (paid or not) who allows the crap out.
Quit puking all over every system on the net, and people will quit thinking that you're slime. Until then - keep your slime away from me.
