right, these blacklists where your IP is listed do not share data, so
they are all wrong and you are right :)

What could also happen is when your VPS provider assigns dynamic
IP numbers or the criminal/spammer that used that IP number before
you, trashed it's reputation

that probably does not bother you much either as it is someone else's
problem, which again, is fine.

and we do not really want spyware/phish/spam/etc

to do as well as it is counter transparent and serves to enforce FUD
All that in combination with 7 block lists, says a lot :)
