... and also note that both the spam emitting source and the advertised
web sites are in 209.245.127.0/24.

If anyone wants to examine a sample, here is one chosen randomly
(and indicating that Level3 knows about this spammer since at 
least 26 february):
http://groups.google.com/groups?selm=4DB92B9A7A58D311955E0008C7CFA8C5F4784F%40SACR01EXC20
- transmitted by: 209.245.127.12
- advertising :   209.245.127.9

The spammer's servers seems to be in their Los Angeles colocation 
facility, so they probably have a lot of bandwidth available.

I refuse to believe that Level3 abuse is unable to assess the
situation because it is very clear.  On the other hand, I would 
readily believe that Level3 abuse proposed termination, but other 
parts of the company did not approve it: because we have already
seen too many similar cases occurring in large backbones.
