For the past few days, I've received a decent amount of spam from the same machine and domain, hosted on Hostgator. Deciding that enough was enough and that I had a minute of my life to waste, I sent an email to abuse@hostgator with some details from my Akismet screen.
I wasn't really expecting much… till I received a reply from the Network Security and ISP Blacklist Administrator over there, telling me they had suspended the spammer's account. And indeed, the domain I complained about now redirects to suspended.hostgator.com. Take that, spammer. And thanks, Hostgator!
Edit: and another account suspended on Hostgator. Ahah. Hey, it even gives me an idea for a plugin :)
