They may have a strong policy, but that doesn't necessarily mean that 
they know all of their customers who are actually spamming.  They 
might need to be told.

That's good.

I've been fighting spam since 1995, and you wouldn't believe the 
number of spammers I've talked to who have claimed that they are 
legit, that they run purely opt-in lists, etc....

Just because someone says they're legit doesn't necessarily make it so.

If they are subscribing themselves, that's good.

Otherwise, not.

Regretfully, there are a small percentage of people out there who 
think it's their sole purpose in life to spoil things for everyone 

If you're going to be in this line of work, you learn very quickly 
that you have to assume the worst.

In your case, I still haven't made up my mind.  So, I am not going to 
report you to GoDaddy (not yet, anyway), but I'm also not going to 
provide any further feedback that might be considered useful.

When I've made up my mind one way or the other, then I will take action.
