And for that matter what I want to know is how the heck have these customers not just been disconnected altogether? A little reworking of the zombie, and the spammers are back in bidness, and the computers are again a liability to Comcast and the Internet alike.

It would seem that actual spammers on Comcast's network are shut down quite promptly by Comcast, so how is it that someone innocent isn't shut down equally quickly, too, whether or not they're guilty of intentionally spamming.

If you're not guilty, sorry, but you'll have to cleanup your infected machine before we'll put you back on our network.

A clean machine should be required for Internet access, IMHO, think of it as like a smog/safety inspection for your car. ;-)
