Problems with a black hole list in the netherlands

Hello, we are currently having a problem with a vigilante block list
in the netherlands... I figure this is as good a forum as any....
>Please see <http://selwerd.cx/xbl/>, xbl is a *local* list, it would cost
>us time to check whether we can whitelist your IP.
Upon contacting this individual we get:
>I listed the netblock(s) of your ISP because we get spam and
>autoreplies from it and sometimes, if at all, mail that is readworthy.
Of course, he can't produce -any- spam, or autoreply's,
from our range.. or much of anything, really. Probably hit
by a NIMBDA worm, or something. But, he has
one of those "Unix Admin from H-ll" attitude's.
Unprofessional, and Vigilante.
How would one approach -this- ?
I would ignore the fool, but his list is mentioned at
Relays.OsiruSoft.com.... and some consider them as a valid source
