Actually, it's worse than that; my ISP charges me for a portion of the
costs of providing the service to everybody, and that includes the
costs they see from spam, even though I don't use their mailservers
for my inbound mail at all.
So I don't just pay for the spammers, I pay for the spammers clogging up
mail servers I don't even use. And, of course, for the bandwidth they
use to send me spam via my own mail server.
