LOL! Apparently Level3 (my upstream) at least has blacklisted their IP, way before it gets anywhere near the Netherlands!

Thank you Level3! Now if other major backbone providers will do the same, we might inoculate the Internet from this ignorant RBL operator quickly.

However, looking up our address on the rbl.iprange.net<http://rbl.iprange.net> lookup webpage shows we're NOT listed. But a check of the RBL's DNS shows that we are.
