Soooooooo.... Spamhaus had been getting hit by a lot of DDoS attacks recently, and it looks like one of the lists has begin taking the brunt of it, causing a lot of false positives to occur when the API was accessed to tell whether an IP was banned or not. This would make Spamhaus think an IP was blocked, and the plugin here was doing what it's told to do. That's one of the problems. Matt would be able to attest to if there were more.
The plugin also uses "Blacklist" a little too liberally IMHO, btw. If you were on my blacklist, you wouldn't even know the IP of my site you were trying to visit existed online anymore.

I was there yesterday, about 2:30pm Its free wifi and slower than molasses. I doubt lots of spammers are paying the ferry fee to log in, but I wouldn't be surprised if lots of infected comps logged in there and hence sent emails off their IP and got it blacklisted. Would only take one or two and there are hundreds of phones and laptops using their wifi every day.

Doesn't work like that. If you could send PMs, the IP range isn't blocked. You can block by IP or by FQDN, if you are getting partial functionality you aren't being blocked by either. If you are able to do X, but not Y you are being filtered based on traffic type or something internal to your own machine.
And the subnets of the Duke Point terminal are irrelevant. You are connecting to that network, how the traffic is handled is done via policy. Plus the outside interface of the terminal and the inside subnets are going to be different IP ranges... If the guy(s) that built have a clue.
Can you find a different network?
