Half Of All Spam Comes From Only 20 ISPs

If 50% of all the spam comes from only 20 ISPs, why not just block them completely until they get their act together?

Of the 42,201 ISPs studied about 50% of all junk mail, phishing attacks and other malicious messages came from just 20 networks, they found. Many of these networks were concentrated in India, Vietnam and Brazil. On the net's most crime-ridden network - Spectranet in Nigeria - 62% of all the addresses controlled by that ISP were seen to be sending out spam.
