I've found the opposite to hold true more often.  Smaller organizations 
can use public blacklists for free, due to their low volume, and so have 
little incentive to run their own local blacklist.  I've typically seen 
the larger organizations run their own blacklists and are much more 
difficult to contact for removal.
