Let me tell you why - I would love to grow my business as well, but will not make use of spam to do so.
Point is, Interland (like 90% of all hosting companies) have a strict policy against sending spam from their servers, but they allow their sales team to use it! And in this case the big guys will get away with it, because nobody can "pull" their server, it's their own.
Funny thing is, I don't have a hosting account with them (register.com), but used their domain registration service some time ago. And that is where they picked up my e-mail address.
