Note that I'm not saying they're not spammers, just that it's not
a typical host for spammers.
Also since they're in Germany on the German phone company's
network it's possible that reporting abuse to them *may* have
more success than say reporting abuse to Korea.
Have you tried complaining to:
% whois -h whois.abuse.net DTAG.DE
abuse at t-ipnet.de (for dtag.de)
sls.dk-cc at telekom.de (for dtag.de)
If so, what did they say?
"If it appears in hams, then don't list it."
