I don't understand. A site has a *local* blacklist:
Delay reason: SMTP error from remote mailer after end of data:
host rhun.apana.org.au [220.127.116.11]: 451-sender IP address 18.104.22.168
is locally blacklisted here. If you think
451 this is wrong, please call +61289874478.
Why do you think that this is relevant to the earlier discussion? That local
administrator could just as easily blocked your site by domain name.
As others have pointed out, if the site didn't feel the need to keep local
blacklists and instead use more heavily vetted ones, your message would not
have been blocked. What are you advocating here?
