I also wanted to add that this issue heavily affects Stanford too, enough
so that they've had to write a FAQ about it:
When I was working at Carnegie, SpamCop often blocked us enough that it
was causing some major headaches. I agree with you: the problem is that
some email admins depend solely on a blacklist, which ends up a fragile
solution to spam.
