As you can see, mail is not blocked based on a multihop listing. If your
mail server is listed on the multihop list (or on a few other lists),
your mail to the list is moderated. This effectively stops all the spam
to the list that gets past the filters or blocking lists. This incident
is the first false positive I've seen. multihop.dsbl.org doesn't get a
lot of hits in the first place, but gets more than list.dsbl.org. I
wouldn't dream of using multihop.dsbl.org for direct blocking.

Further discussion on this should be done off the list.
