That is just simply not true.

While there may be a few tiny blacklist setups that put a domain on the list
without checking it out directly themselves, NO blacklist organization of
any size, or one that is even on the radar screen, does this.

All of the ones that are even barely commonly known, only put a system on
the blacklist after THEY have tested it themselves. Anyone can submit a
domain, but it will be tested by them for an actual open relay before they
put it on the list.
