Yeah on precisely one:

So not "several", and not a "this IP is a source of spam" list, that one is
not even a blacklist per se, and those using it as one are incompetent and
wrong. In fact I would also categorize the person "so helpfully running it" as
such, since there is no reason whatsoever to track non-exit relays in any kind
of a publicly offered "black"list, unless you just want to inflict harm onto
the relay operators and get them unfairly blocked from various services.

With respect,
