EV1 and The Planet are merging

Two service providers with bad spam histories EV1 and The Planet have announced a merger. What this means for spam is not yet certain, but it can't be good. My speculation is that the more effective of the two abuse departments will be fired and all abuse cases will be handled by the other. Discussion of the merger on the net-abuse newsgroups centers mainly on which of the two has the worst history, and what the merged company should be called (my vote is for Everyone's Spam Planet.)
