Blacklists are simple enough that any idiot can run one. Many do.

automated blacklisting for backscatter worries me a bit...)

Compared with some of the reasons uceprotect will blacklist you
for, backscatter is positively reasonable.

Unless a blacklist is used for blocking mail to a degree that you
notice an effect on mail traffic you really shouldn't pay any
attention to it. It's certainly not something that has much of an
operational or (eyeing the list this is on) protocol level impact.
