Most companies would probably take the "spamwhack rating" of new customers
as advisory only. Or at least, I would. The guidelines of the ISP putting
the client on the list might not be the same guidelines the new ISP
has. Also, I can easily envision a scenario where a user running his own
10000+ opt-in fully-verified mailinglist at a clueless provider with a
few clueless subscribers can get a listing on spamwhack, for completely
the wrong reasons.
