Let's go through this again - we did it months ago. My site is hosted by
hostmonster, which also operates as bluehost. They are a *large* provider,
with hundreds of thousands of domains, and the email from all of them go
through their (few) email servers. Therefore, when 100 or so of them
running WinBlows get their hosts infected, and they send out spam, and the
hosting provider hasn't caught them yet, hundreds of thousands of the rest
of us get hit with the same block.

Who here is *not* using a work email? Who here posts from their own
hosting site? Has this ever happened to you?
