This isn't true.  Another precondition for not being blocked because
of a single incident is that Spamcop (or Ironport?) sees enough
solicited mail from your server.  Most non-US/non-English mail ISPs
aren't in this category, even if they have many users.  I wouldn't be
surprised if you could change by becoming a customer of Ironport and
use their spam-related services.  Go figure.

Spamcop never blocked MSN Hotmail, even when it was a constant source
of spam (submitted over the web interface)...
