Sure, but I want a real human response not always, just once in a while.  Have
they fixed their open relay problem that they've known for more than a year?
nope.  "We are too big" crap just does not work anymore.  Banning uu.net 
dynamic IP addresses will cut on spam in a major way, and should not impede any
legitimate users in any way. 

Of course, spammers can just go back to using open relays <sigh>, but that is
more manageable.
