Intermedia is clued WRT abuse. (If they weren't, I wouldn't be an IBI reseller.) In fact the person who is more or less in charge of abuse over there is a friend of mine and is at least a lurker here -- However, although I have the pleasure of knowing some of the people on the UUNET abuse team - and there are plenty of people there who take joy in thwacking spam and spammers - I don't know if they have any authority over the other Worldcom divisions. Supposedly, if a UUNET sales droid spams, they get spanked pretty hard. But this is Digex, not UUNET. It is important to note that while they still use digex.net, IBI's name is Intermedia Business Internet. Digex *is* strictly hosting, and I've been corrected by my friend the abuse czar more than once. Digex != IBI; IBI != Digex. Digex is part of the "Degeneration D" Collective. HTH.
