Tell them once. That's as good as you can do. I've had my email address compromised from a well known financial institution. Of course the person I spoke to didn't know anything about it or why it was their fault. Two years later they publicly admitted they were hacked.
I find that a lot of leaked addresses are from failed companies, whose websites no longer exist.
There are many websites out there that are compromised. You would be quite surprised. I wish there was an easy way to post these so others could know.

I purchased this book at Borders some years ago. I had to order it, as they didn't have it in stock. The first time the order came in, they gave me "The Anarch Cookbook" Turns out it's not the same thing. It's quite an amusing read. I'm not sure there's actually one piece of useful information in there.
