yes, you have missed it because i've mentioned it several times in this
thread.  here it is spelt out so that even you or jason should be able
to understand it:

1. is the site an open relay?
2. is the site a spam source?
3. does the site host any spamvertised sites?
4. does the site provide any other spam support services?

if any of the above are true, then the site should be black-listed.
regardless of company size.

see, the criteria are very simple:  are they spammers or do they assist
spammmers?  no subjectivity, no exceptions, no different rules for the
big end of town.
