Spam from an ISP? Say it isn't so!

SUMMARY: No summary available.
OK I usually don't do this (because it would take all day and is mean to boot), but I am outing a company for spamming us:

We just received this form letter which was mailed to an email address (ads@marketingsherpa.com) stripped from our Web site. I checked and nobody on the Sherpa side has ever personally met or contacted these people. I think in a day and age when ISPs are all desperate to stop spam, that it's freakish that one would send an unsolicited sales note to an email harvested from our site. The note:

"National ISP Co. is a business class bulk email friendly ISP.
We are dedicated to supporting your company with your
email advertising program.
our website address is >>
WWW.NATIONAL-ISP.ORG
please call our office for more information and prices.
Phone: 336.841.5156 and ask for Paul or Len.
ask about our referral program"
