Here is an update. I sent an e-mail to complain to the address listed, and
I received an accusation that I did not read thier docs.

I told them I was running a mail server with a valid MX record and SPFv1
TXT records served by DNS for the mail service, and they told me
"I would like you to read it again." ... "We list tor nodes which offers
connections to ports like smtp or irc."

Nifty. I guess they think smtp is not mail.

What is worse? Running a mail server is enough to get blacklisted, because
I certainly do not run an irc server.
I think you're misunderstanding the situation. They don't list hosts that accept SMTP or IRC connections. They list hosts running TOR servers which allow TOR clients to use the server for *outgoing* SMTP or IRC connections (or the outgoing ports listed on the sectoor page).

They also list other addresses in the same class C range as TOR servers. This is relevant because, had you read their page carefully and examined your TOR listing, you'd find that isn't listed as an alleged TOR server. It's listed because it's within the same class C range as the alleged TOR server running on
