It's quite common to get in there :-/

ISP spools for dynamic DSL IP addresses come and go between clients, so 
there is a high chance you get a blacklisted IP one day or other: one 
user sends spam and gets listed, then you power-cycle your DSL router 
which polls for a new address and you get the "dirty" one. You're damned.

IP blacklisting is nowadays "futile", it should be avoided at all. Well, 
it can be useful when used along with spam filters based on scoring but 
blocking a client just by his/her IP is foolish.
