Looks like it's Knight Web hosting (read: Big, Huge, Unchecked spam
house):

Moreoever, if you lookup the Netblock name, you get a name and phone
number (and address) of the person who owns that IP space:

...so, what you should do is send email to abuse at sprint.net,
noc at sprint.net (their upstream provider), as well as
gknight81 at hotmail.com (chances are its his personal email address, which
will annoy him more - he sent you mail you didnt want, you can do the
same to him).  Also, give Mr. Knight a call and give him a piece of your
mind.
