Yeah, but when was the last time you saw a spammer co-hosted with a
legitimate host on the same IP? Crikey, the spammers I see have their
own IPs in such ridiculous abundance that it makes a mockery of the fact
that I can only get a /27 for some hundred domains we host...

Not that I'm bitter, or anything. But it /does/ seem that money talks,
