This person does not know the > difference between MAPS and ORBS. Wow, this text was incredibly ambiguous. "Currently, the most common reason for a host or network being in the MAPS RBLSM is that it was used by a spammer as a mail relay. We call this third party relay spamming since the owner of the mail relay is neither a spammer nor a spamee." - http://www.mail-abuse.org/rbl/candidacy.html#ByRelaying Does MAPS cover other things as well? Certainly. "Blackholing Due to Spam Origination (Then) Blackholing Due to Spam Origination (Now) Blackholing Due to Spam Relaying Blackholing Due to Spam Support Services Blackholing Due to Netblock Inheritance" Now for the removal process: "If we are contacted, a staff member will confirm that the listed site is no longer relaying spam. If it is not relaying, the site will be unlisted, usually within a few minutes of the email or phone call. If the site is still permitting relay, the listing will continue unless there is a clear and short timeline to get anti-relay code deployed." The language seems pretty plain to me.
