[dns-operations] BLOCK: Spam from NeuStar/Ultra DNS

I just got spam from NeuStar/Ultra DNS (fragment attached), delivered to 
hostmaster@$workplace. Up until now I rather thought that Ultra DNS was 
one of the good guys, but this is completely unacceptable! Can someone 
give me a good reason not to block these people and throw away the key?

Cc: dns-operations, where I would hope spam from a major player in the 
DNS field is not considered off topic and Ed Lewis at NeuStar.
