That's what the maintainers of black lists say, but in fact, the
popular black lists are almost universally used by people who consider
them a response to the spam problem without considering that the
critera for being blacklisted and for being removed from blacklists
are under control of the operators of the lists who guarantee no due
process and are accountable to no one.
