Absolutely.  A quick scan of the 150 or so copies that I've received
indicates that all but 3 of them have come from the same /24, so I have
a reasonably good idea who (in my case) as well.

Actually, if you're writing to the ISP, I'd suggest making it a nice letter.
The people manning incoming communication are much more likely to deal with
your complaint properly if you hold back from calling them an asshole.
Give them the time and timezone that you received it, and all the headers,
and they'll get the job done.
