Sprint sales managers can be worse than that.

See http://www.spamhaus.org/SBL/sbl.lasso?query=SBX2461
to see a Sprint manager lying to Sprintlink abuse desk,
making ridiculous statements about the Spamhaus project.

In my opinion Sprint is one of the worst problems with
respect to spam.  We are an ISP and we will never, never
buy connectivity from them, given the spam-fighting costs
that Sprint inflicts us by giving bulletproof service
to spammers.
