There are?  SORBS has been listing BT for some time now because of the 
continual stream of spam to the spamtraps, and first contact was made 
within the last 7 days - and from memory that mail appear to be a bit of 
throwing ones weight around (which doesn't wash with me at all - 
everyone is treated the same, and if I am treated with respect I treat 
others with respect).

>If the guy is asking for DNSBLs to use, and you have some good ones in mind, help him, I'd say.
I agree, though based on the recent communication I wonder whether 
someone is after finding out whether they should be able to safely 
ignore lists such as mine ... ;-/



PS: If there are BT staffers here with clout, you might want to contact 
me over the listings.  Noone is exempt from listing in SORBS, but proven 
whitehats don't get blocked.
