It is of course more timeconsuming, but legal systems (should) give everyone a fair chance. Franks witch-hunt suggestion is exactly what I don't want. Legal systems also pursue the party that is legally doing something wrong, not the ISP or any other third party that shouldn't be bothered in the first place (of course sometimes it is the ISP etc).

The company I work for block this spam too (only the spam, not the entire provider), but we would certainly not punish or file a lawsuit.
