This isn't a new problem. If the facts below are accurate, it's 
Spamhaus' way of trying to force people not to patronize Internet 
service providers that are used by spammers. Here's a discussion we had 
about blacklists in 2002 and 2003:

Declan,

Hope all is well.  Thought your Politech readers might be interested
in the following account of the Terrorism Research Center being
blocked by SpamHaus because we have an IP address in the same subnet
as an organization that engaged in direct mailings for Staples.

Rather than block the suspect IP address, SpamHaus is blocking the
whole subnet.  As a result, an organization that has been on the
internet for over 10 years (with zero spam complaints) and on the
same static IP address for over 5 years gets listed as a spammer
causing us tremendous harm to our business operations.

This seems to be a very bad trend as those that have established the
trust of the community no abuse that trust through laziness and
arrogance.

Thanks!

Matt
