I agree. My experience has shown that approx. 40% of all mailboxes are
protected by the RBL. It can't be that hard to convince your ISP to use the
RBL or find a new one that already is.
I found the funniest resource yet on the net: some spamming ISP has posted a
"hall of shame" -- ISPs filtering email. If you want a great resource for
spam-free ISPs, this is just too good to be true:
Sean mentioned that it's only really possible to bounce message as they come
in from the spammer. That's true -- and highly desirable. Bounced mail can
chew up more of the sender's resources. That's the best reason to have the
filtering done at the ISP.

Another alternative may be to ask your ISP to set it up for you...
