URLs with an IP are no virtual hosts sharing the same IP -
if that was the question.  http://127.0.0.1/pillz results in

| GET /pillz HTTP/1.0
[...]
| Host: 127.0.0.1

If a host has more than one IP the other IPs aren't affected
by a listing of the spamvertized IP.  There's only a problem
if one host with one IP has many virtual hosts (= users), and
the spammer abuses the virtual host corresponding to the real
IP.  That should be almost impossible, in that case the hoster
would be the spammer.  In other words it's not your problem.
