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.
