First, please quit with the top posting Jeff.  (I refer you to the NANOG 
FAQ for elaboration on why this is not an acceptable format for posting 
to this list.)

Second, this entire thread IS OFF TOPIC for NANOG.  Which you would know 
if you had bothered to read the FAQ before posting.  There are many 
discussion forums for talking about spam and RBLs, and NANOG is not one 
of them.

Third, you are not doing your reputation any good with this thread.  
Your entire tone is one of "I'm so important that the rules don't apply 
to me.  They need to stop blocking me right now.  Even when I'm wrong 
(when spammer's sites are still active because I don't know how to 
properly null-route their IPs, or shut down their server, or I fat 
fingered the "fix" and didn't bother to double check that it's really 
blocked now.  They still need to stop blocking me Right Now."  You may 
not be aware that this list is publicly archived on the web in several 
different locations.  Anyone who bothers to google your name (e.g. a 
future employer) is likely to discover this thread and be less than 
impressed.  Any future posts are only going to add to the problem, not 
help fix it.
