I started getting notified via MXToolbox (I had it set up years ago, offers single IP free monitoring) that my static home IP is blacklisted on Uceprotect level2.
There is a link to check out what to do about it, and there it says my IP is not directly involved in any spamming, but they still put the whole block on a blacklist if there is a single spammer sending out crap.
The thing is it’s a big-ass block, 65536 IPs if my math is correct (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/16). Provider does not give a crap, naturally.
But being nice people they are, they will whitelist my IP if it’s whitelisted on whitelisted.org, as it’s not my fault but some other asshole on my block. They however want to get paid, and get paid a lot - 25CHF/month.
This just feels like an extortion attempt, sort of like “You are going to prison because someone in your neighborhood is a criminal. Unless you pay us. Monthly.”.
Should I take any action, or just ignore them? I didn’t observe any email send/receive issues from the home server.
