Black Lists are the contradiction of White Lists and contain only identities, that are already known as spammers.
SPAM over Internet Telephony and how to deal with it
Any call from a caller whose identity is present in the callee’s Black List is blocked.
SPAM over Internet Telephony and how to deal with it
Even Black Lists can be implemented as distributed Black Lists, where a callee can consult the Black Lists of other users.
SPAM over Internet Telephony and how to deal with it
Black Lists can not really be viewed as a SPIT countermeasure, because additional methods are needed to classify a caller a Spitter. A Black List on server side would require e.g. statistical methods for classifying a caller as Spitter.

Upon a query, the black box subroutine writes the m-th number from the list on the tape.
Local Hamiltonians in Quantum Computation
The complexity of the algorithm is then determined by the number of queries to the black box the TM needs to ask before it determines whether a number is in the black box list or not.
