No luck as yet. I've sent an e-mail to [email protected] and [email protected], 
hopefully I'll receive a reply from these.

Exclusionary blocklists are a great idea if they're constantly 
maintained. I'm unclear as to why mail administrators don't work more 
proactively with things like SenderID and SPF, as these seem to be far 
more maintainable in the long-run than an ever-growing list of IP 
address ranges.
