Yet another dead, and aplenty used DNS BL list...

Right... Poisoned.

I don't oppose use of DNS BLs per se, what I do find opposable is
people's lack of tracking of how their DNS BL is living at any given

The monkeys dataset announced end of service on 23rd of September 2003,
and I do find that their leniency of 4 months has been quite gracious
enough. Read more at that web-page.

The free/public DNS BLs have limited lifespans, when using such, be
very carefull to track their status at least weekly, including end-of-
service announcements in their web-pages.
