That's what happens when ISP's aren't careful about what happens on their
network. Getting your IP's on the black list is probably one of the worst
things you can let happen as an ISP. They warn you and give you time to
rectify the situation (cancel accounts/access of offenders) before they
actually add you to the list, which is impossible to get removed from.

Many sysadmins rely on the black list to keep their users from getting tons
of spam. It's funny to see the current list of ISP's who ignored the
warnings and got added. Another example of how clueless some of these big
companies really are.

I am totally surprised to see rackspace on the list. I always thought they
ran a pretty tight ship since they are probably one of the only large collo
companies actually making profit.

That is a drag! You shouldn't give up on the list though. It's not like has anything against rackspace users. They are just one of many who
make use of the blacklist. Use another email account or get a hotmail
account or something. The list needs you! :-)
