Favor needed from KPLUG

The person below continues sending viruses to me and who knows how many others (copy of one such message below, I'm sure it's a typical luser that has no idea his computer is infected). I've been receiving them at the rate of at least one a day since around April. I've called the ISP (mpowercom.net) and they said their abuse policy is that they will do nothing unless they receive at least five complaints from different people. I attempted to contact their legal department and was connected to an answering machine and have not received a call back. I've sent every message from this guy to their abuse address (abuse at mpowercom.net) and have received no action from there either.
So, I'm wonder the kind folks on KPLUG can assist me in getting through to this ISP. I've nearly been black-listed in the past for some asshole sending viruses/spam with spoofed headers, I really don't need it again.
In the past, with all ISPs/registrars but one, I have been able to get through to them and they've taken appropriate action to disable the account, etc. This is one of those companies that doesn't give a rat's ass apparently.
