I see there's some follow up on
a response from wikileaks.info

We find it very disturbing that Spamhaus labels a site as dangerous without
> even checking if there is any malware on it. We monitor the wikileaks.info site
> and we can guarantee that there is no malware on it. We do not know who else
> is hosted with Heihachi Ltd and it is none of our business. They provide
> reliable hosting to us. That's it.

> While we are in favour of 'Blacklists', be it for mail servers or websites,
> they have to be compiled with care. Just listing whole IP blocks as 'bad'
> may be quick and easy for the blacklist editors, but will harm hosters and
> web site users.

> Wikileaks has been pulled from big hosters like Amazon. That's why we are
> using a 'bulletproof' hoster that does not just kick a site when it gets a
> letter from government or a big company. Our hoster is giving home to many
> political sites like castor-schottern.org and should not be blocked just
> because they might have hosted some malware sites.

> Fortunately, more responsible blacklists, like stopbadware.org (which
> protects the Firefox browser, for example), don't list us. We do hope that
> Spamhaus hasn't issued this statement due to political pressure.
