Blacklisted by SBL, No Idea Why

I joined a forum that looks exactly like this one yesterday, and I had no problem making a post then, but now, it won't let me because SpamHaus has blacklisted me some time in the last 12 hours. SBL has blacklisted me, but when I check the page SpamHaus links me to when I search my ip, it doesn't tell me why. I tried running MalwareBytes, which turned up nothing on my computer. I can't request removal through the link provided by SpamHaus because it demands I have a hostname, even though I've never even had a website or an email host or whatever. I have absolutely no idea why I've been blacklisted or what info I should try to get about my computer to start figuring it out.

Any help would be appreciated.

What website were you trying to visit and what was the exact error message you saw?

I'm still blacklisted, but the problem I had seems to have gone away, so I guess it doesn't matter anymore. If I should ever have trouble with a different site, I'll try to get myself removed from the blacklist. Thanks
