By 'output for input' I meant that back in 2002, one could smtp transact
with .99 and it would accept the mail for relaying and the item would go
out the .214. And there's evidence for that. Nowadays there isn't an
smtp server or port 25 at .99, or there wasn't when I checked. Even if
you don't care about .99, if some spamhaus worker looks around and sees
various IPs listed in various places, it makes you look like a gray hat
or an 'incompetent' antispam provider.

One of the problems with getting on lists is that some lists are very
hard to get off of. They aren't automatic for delisting and they don't
allow the individual to just delist themselves. The more lists you get
onto, the more trouble you are going to have getting off of them; and
some people use other lists to make their own lists. The moral of that
story is to follow as many guidelines as possible to avoid spam coming
from your IPs so as to avoid getting listed in the first place.
