Frankly, I didn't check if linuxtv.org follows rfc2821 (and now that I'm
delisted I cannot check), however most of the sites that blindly rely on
flawed blacklists don't usually honour rfc2821 either (I suppose you
refer to section 4.5.1).

Yes, there are workarounds for linuxtv.org. In other cases it may not be
so simple to contact the administrador (see above). And, again, I
shouldn't go through all this hassle: I did nothing wrong.
