    The following tips from Kent McGovern are what -not- to say to a blacklist operator:
    1. "You don't understand, this email HAS to get delivered"
    2. "But I bought this list from a reputable company"
    3. "Let me tell you about my business model"
    4. "I will sue you if you don't remove this blacklist"
    5. "You guys are just email terrorists"
    6. "This is my ESPs fault!"
    7. "But these people want my email"
    8. "But my email is CAN-SPAM compliant!"
    More things -not- to say coming soon!

    Also, here are some tips for mailing lists that I wrote back in 2009, most of which still apply today in 2015.
