3 days ago I got blacklisted by outblaze when I  got framed by some virus
that triggered my majordomo to respond to a forged subscription request
with an outblaze's spamtrap "original" address. Luckily, the outblaze
postmaster was very quick to respond and whitelist me back.

I don't actually know how to prevent this happening in the future.
A bit unexpected mode of spamtrap operation, isn't it?

P.S. maybe we should move the thread to NANAE?
