I feel sorry for you, I hope bashing helps. (at least it makes you feel better?)
In the Netherlands SPAM is not allowed by law, and this stops allmost all "business" type SPAM. The remaining SPAM is usually international and of the type that the SPAM filter of google blocks most of the time. Maybe this is a solution for the USA also?

Spam isn't allowed here, either. Try stopping the people who send it! The only way to do it is to forward the spam to the appropriate gov't office but they don't do anything anyway. Like the 'do not call' phone list doesn't stop anyone from calling. They just put up a fake phone number on the caller id and if you call the number back you're told it's out of service. And then they play a recording (also not allowed) but you can't stop them because you don't know who they are.
The only way to do it is to BUY a phone service that blocks phone numbers.

When I unsubscribed to Ho tel Interactive I got a phonecall asking me why I unsubscribed. I'm also getting follow up comments on my blog to the spam comments I delete. People just don't have enough constructive stuff to do.

These people at secondcasa.com are continuing their hammering of a range of email addresses we have. The emails come from "Marion Gross", probably someone who doesn't exist.
Just over the last week we've received 10 of them, and of course our many requests during the year to be removed go unanswered, no doubt lost in the avalanche of unsubscription requests or bounced emails.
Clearly the people at secondcasa.com are serial spamsters, and I hope people think twice about doing business with an organisations whose sole method of promotion is done by flaunting anti-spam laws.

My host company (Inmotion) allows us to block many of the spammers using C panel on their servers. If you use a hosting company you may want to look into that. We have successfully blocked many of the more notorious spammers and some that I have never heard of. If it does not have our BB name in the subject line it goes into limbo and the sender gets an e-mail asking them to click on the link to have it sent. I can release it at any time. In fact the amount of spam has been reduced so much that I have turned off the filter.
