Submission Australian ISP blacklists GMail - blames Google

BigLug writes: "The Age reports that Australia's largest ISP has blacklisted GMail. "BigPond has slammed Google's spam fighting credentials". Why? Because "Google's mail servers were blacklisted by BigPond". BigPond attempts to lay the problem at Google's feet, claiming that Google didn't act fast enough to de-list themselves after they were incorrectly listed. BigPond uses Trend Micro's anti spam solutions, but even Trend Micro think BigPond got it wrong and even "praised Google's handling of the issue". Should a service such as GMail be responsible for monitoring every ISP's blacklist for incorrect listings?"
