I suggest that "fantastic" reasons are unnecessary. That someone might have
a valid point to contribute is enough reason to permit them; that their
domain administrator doesn't know what they're doing (eg no reverse DNS or
no postmaster@) really doesn't strike me as a valid reason to prevent
everyone else on this list from making up our own silly minds.

Of course, there's always this handy X-RBL-Warning: header that could be
inserted in the mail as it comes from the list server... Nah, just block or
don't block, no compromises allowed ;^]
