Not more than you all by yourself. But if it´s not $evil_provider but 
simply $attackers_provider it usually helps. AOL and @home are other 
matters, though.

I have experienced enough cases where complaints I sent from my 
home-address were completely ignored, but when sent from my 
work-address (or, to cut matters short, <Abuse@KPNQwest.at>, which I´m 
also part of) attention was given almost immediately.
