It takes about an hour or so..to remove yourself, and you do get a
response email saying it's been done. Of course, the problem is that
when you resend your mail, it will go through a different MTA, and might
have an IP that's been blocked.
As a practical matter, looking over those IPs in their logs, it looks
like the blacklist provider "gets offended" every few weeks..
