what has size got to do with it?

ISPs are responsible for spam sent by their customers, regardless of the
size of the ISP (or the size of the customer for that matter).

what the hell are you talking about?

are you being genuinely stupid or is this a deliberate attempt to put
straw-man words in my mouth?

most ISPs don't run on dynamic IP addresses.  while there are some very
ignorant ISPs around, very few are stupid enough to even think of
running a mail server ona dynamic IP address.

i don't see any need to make special exemptions for ISPs who are stupid
enough to run on dynamic IPs.
