Just to play devil's advocate, hosts are assigned IPs in blocks, and
keeping their IPs off things like blacklists is something they should
take seriously.  I'd hate to rent a dedicated server only to find out
that the last guy who had my IP was a big time spammer or got banned
from major IRC networks or something and that the IP is blacklisted a
dozen ways from Sunday. So I can understand where they come from with
respect to trying to keep certain content off their network.
