Well it looks like SORBS has chlorine.canonical.com listed, but no-one

If you wish to request a delisting please do so through the Support
System.

Eligible for self delisting as only one spam occurance is recorded
------------------------

So someone (the list owner?) could request de-listing.  My recollection
of black-listing is that de-listing is easily done if you are not
continually spamming, but if you de-list, then spam again, and keep
doing this, then de-listing get progressively harder.

I used to report a lot of spam through SpamCop at one time, but nowadays
my ISP does a through job of filtering spam (and probably a few
legitimate emails as well).
