Keep in mind that the problem isn't the providers that already do altruistic things like BCP38, actually reading their abuse@ mailbox, and dealing with zombied users. Said solution will have to deal effectively with the problematic providers. And quite frankly, if they haven't gotten the ROI message regarding cleaning house *yet*, they're unlikely to do it unless "Do it or go to jail/other penalties" happens. To stem the usual flood of tired suggestions, I'd recommend *not* following up with "If we all did XYZ" unless you have in fact gotten at least one problem provider (whom you were *not* employed by at the time) to implement XYZ.
