Poorly worded, but it's to do with regulations. You have to have a proper unsubscribe option which means people can't be added back on to the list (through incompetence or malice). Hence, a separate list of addresses not to be used must be maintained, and I can see how this ends up getting called a blacklist.

(Fortunately, I don't deal with our marketing mailing lists myself, so I don't know all the details of the relevant regulations, only that this requirement causes a number of systems set up for this kind of thing to default to this behaviour. My colleague who shares my office could tell me more if bothered him.)
