I'll snip the rest so we don't have to endure it again.
There is a tendency to blame DNSBL/RHSBLs when they do something that we
think is not appropriate. IMHO, any admin who gives up control of
his/her own server to others, deserves whatever happens.
We started out using DNSBL/RHSBLs. We reduced our dependency on them as
we built up our own anti-spam tools. Today, the only DNSBL/RHSBLs we
use are our own in-house ones.
If people are too lazy to do anything but throw a bunch or RBLs in their
configuration, and are willing to depend on people they don't know from
a hole in the wall, they really shouldn't complain when unanticipated
results occur. Its their own fault.
