No, not necessarily. Given  that there are Tier 1 ISPs, Tier 2, etc.,
so you can certainly have some small-ish ISP colluding with criminal
activity, in effect, by ignoring it or claiming ignorance.

However, it's kind of hard to plead ignorance when, say, people
continually alert them to the issues and they persist.

That's just one example... I can come up with more. :-)
