Infected ISP in Virginia (Roadrunner)

I've gotten about thirty Netsky-infected emails in the last few hours, all from this SMTP server:

rrcs-west-67-52-121-169.biz.rr.com

I sent my protest to abuse@rr.com and received an automated reply from them with another infected Netsky attachment. I'd let that be the end of it, but I'm noticing the email addresses of friends and acquaintances in the science fiction community trapped within their Netsky-infected spam net. If you're getting hassled, too, you might want to let them know.

A whois search reveals that
rrcs-west-67-52-121-169.biz.rr.com is operated by:


Road Runner-Commercial
OrgID: RCWE
Address: 13241 Woodland Park Road
City: Herndon
StateProv: VA
PostalCode: 20171
Country: US

Ironically, the Arin whois server appears to be hosted by the
Road Runner ISP:

OrgTechHandle: IPTEC-ARIN
OrgTechName: IP Tech
OrgTechPhone: +1-703-345-3416
OrgTechEmail: abuse@rr.com

The above telephone number, unfortunately, is an automated voicemail message. Their website lists a sales contact number at 1-866-520-5983 and a local number (703) 345-2400. I'm not feeling virtuous enough, at this point, to expend another telephone call on them -- but I might, if the Netsky glut in my mailbox continues.
