to put all open relays on a black list without warning its administreator
first, is quite a hard measure.
We warn them fist, tell them how to fix it, they get 24 hrs to fix it and
after a no fix we just terminate/suspend  the service. This works fine. Most
admins do not know what their server is capable of. Especialy when you have
small buisisnses as your custommer. The admin job there is done next to some
other job. We see a lot of people running ms-exhange server, and they just
do not know how to fix this.

It is all a matter of educating your custommer. Blacklist should be there
for sources who are willing (mis)using the medium.
