They would be eligible for listing on the RBL per
As you can see sometime
spam/annoying emails is not always sent throught an open relay but
sometimes it's a problem with mailing lists..... What should maps
do, start adding sites that act like this?
When we receive a valid and actionable nomination per the requirements
of http://mail-abuse.org/rbl/reporting.html, it is investigated and
handled according to procedures. If the entity is unable or unwilling
to rectify the situation that allows them to continue to send
unsolicited e-mail, they *do* get added to the RBL.
What we don't do is add them to the RSS. That's for open, single
stage, abused relays. We haven't been escalating those to the RBL for
the better part of a year. Multi-hop open abused relays are still
eligible for listing on the RBL.
I am just making the point that if MAPS wasn't run by one person with
total control maybe some of us "retards who don't know what we are
doing" would be a bit more will to support the effort.
Well, since MAPS *isn't* run one person with total control but rather a
good sized staff of folks that have various responsiblilties for
receiving, assessing, investigating and recommending listings or
otherwise resolving the nominations for our various lists, does this
mean you are going to be supporting the effort?

you are a bit misinformed.
