Err, it's *not* an Indian call centre. They have a support office in
India, but the majority of calls are handled in the USA and UK - and
they operate around the clock 'following the sun'. The only time India
would handle a call is if (a) something went very wrong (b) you were
located in India seeking service in India.

Barracuda are *very* good at reputation lists - one of the best for all
their other failings. They can easily tell you the extent of your
spamming and support it with evidence. If you've got listed at Barracuda
*YOU HAVE SENT SPAM* so quit bleating.
