Many ISP's who do care about issues such as worms, infected users 
"spreading the love", etc. simply do not have the man-power to handle 
all their infected users' population.

It is becoming more and more obvious that the answer may not be at the 
ISP's doorstep, but the ISP's are indeed a critical part of the 
solution. What their eventual role in user safety will be I can only 
guess, but it is clear (to me) that this subject is going to become a 
lot "hotter" in coming years.

The ISPs will be a part of the solution.  However, ISPs fall into two major
categories:

1) The ones that read the types of lists that you posted this to
2) The ones that have the problem.

You're preaching to the choir, Gadi - and if there's *one* thing I'd like a
solution for, it's *that* problem.  How do you get the unwashed masses of ISPs
to join the choir so you can preach to them?
