"necessary to protect domains from being blacklisted."?

How about the more factual:   "Is used as a decision factor by many of
the programmers who create blacklist-creation tools?"

Blacklists are not like blackholes, a natural result of laws of
nature.  They are the product of human action, and the people who made
decisions around them ought to own up to the fact that they are making
decisions.
