Request Spamhaus contact

Our listing is misleading. They show me specifically what needs to be
done and why and we will act on it. The problem is that they expect me
to dig through our customer database and correlate various customers
to ROKSO listings. I don't have the resources for this. If they show
me where the problem exists I will fix it but so far they do nothing
but preemptively block our entire /21 in an attempt to scare us into
mass removal of customers.

Someone there needs to reply to my questions so I can act on their
request. Also, they need to get in touch with ME DIRECTLY before they
ban an entire ISP on multiple occasions. I liken their strategy to
setting ants on fire and watching them scurry. I've showed a
willingness to work with them and correct problems but they think
their only option is to list the entire company each time they need
something done.
