I have to second that, the same for me. The only way to access this list is via
gmane, otherwise orbitl.com (a Ceylon-based anti-spamming list) will jump in. We
have a dynamic address, so this list seems ban whole ranges.

I have tried to remove me from orbitl; it may have worked or not, because of the
dynamic address I do not always track. I tried to contact the webmaster at ETH
twice, but got no response. 

This is an annoyance; I know that I should contact orbitl every time, but since
that organization is a mess, it better would be removed from the ETH
anti-spamming list.
