As I reported in my reply to Rich's post, it appears that Apache on
mail.python.org uses list.blogspambl.com as it's one and only block
list. This does seem to block quite a few POST requests (It isn't
applied to GET).

I had nothing to do with setting this up and can't speak to why this and
only this block list was chosen, but it seems that xbl.spamhaus.org
would be an appropriate (additional ?) list.
