      It's not surprising that Spamhaus would fail to mention US IRS
      classifications of status, since they are based in UK.

      Did you reply to the email and ask?

      When my friend[1] Norman De Forest passed away in 2006, Spamhaus
      donated a data feed to his ISP, Chebucto Community Net, as a
      memorial. There are human beings behind Spamhaus; perhaps you can
      find a sympathetic ear. Can't hurt to ask, anyway. Good luck.



      [1] An Internet acquaintance only, but I think anyone[2] who came
      in contact with Norman thought of him as a friend.
