Huge Drop in MSN Traffic "Certainly" Blacklist Spam

I am trying not to take this out of context, but MSNdude at a WebmasterWorld thread, in my opinion, goes out on a limb. In response to a question that states;

We used to get tons of traffic [from MSN]- however, it is now down to a trickle.

MSNdude responds;

When a site disappears like this it's almost certainly because it's been blacklisted as spam -- either manually or automatically. Send e-mail to webspam at if you think your site was marked spam by mistake.

I find that response strange. Typically a search rep will look for site owner issues, which is most often the cause of the issue. Maybe I am tired, but seems very strange to me.
