 I have seen no evidence of such behavior, and a third-party service
 monitors all of the FFmpeg IP addresses for malicious behavior (none has
 ever been detected).

 I'm not sure why it was relisted, and I don't know how Symantec determines
 what they think is spam or not. They probably don't like mailing lists,
 maybe they don't like servers located in Bulgaria, maybe it's part of a
 larger service and instead of unsubscribing from the mailing lists some
 lazy users just report the mailing list messages as spam? Who knows. I am
 not a mail systems expert, but there are some things I can look into that
 may help; I just need the time and motivation to do it.

 "Investigate" button [probably not, I assume].)

 If you want to request the IP be re-removed, then yes, you can click it
 and fill out a form, but unless they tell us why it has been relisted then
 it will likely just reappear.
