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.
