No, as I said, I do NOT want to block ALL mail from these email addresses,
it isn't spam.  I just want to block them joining lists.

They are not spammers, they haven't posted anything objectionable, they're
just clueless AOLers who have reported messages from lists they voluntarily
signed up for as spam so I need to block them from receiving any list mail
from my server.

But I do want them to be able to send private email to me and everyone else
I host, they may be friends with people I host and I have no problem with
them emailing them.  And especially if they try to join a list and find
they can't, then they can email me or the listowners and we can explain why
they're banned and why they shouldn't indiscrimately hit that "spam"

So blackholing or rejecting their mail thru my MTA or spam filter doesn't
work, I only want to affect their ability to join lists on my server.
