So security is not a crucial factor in your eyes then.
If a DC is allowing its services to be used for Spamming/Phishing and then ignores abuse reports and insults anyone filing such reports then this is a major security issue in my eyes.
as either the DC is behind the Spam etc. or they are allowing the spammers access to their servers to plant keyloggers/adware/malware etc. across the nodes giving them access to their clients servers etc.
