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

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?
