The dialup blacklists are not all-encompassing, I would imagine that you were
in an IP range that was not listed.
If you don't believe me about this, look for yourself at the NANOG-L
(North American Network Operators' Group) archives -- there is a good

amateurs, for the most part - they are the movers and the shakers of the IP
world (well, at least in North America).
