[vox] very interesting read: orbz

orbz was one of those free databases of open-relays that people use to
proactively block spam using DNS.  like ordb, but much more aggressive.
orbz actually went out and scanned hosts.

alot of people likened them to a DoS attack.  whether you liked em or
not, this is a very short and highly interesting read:


i must have missed this on slashdot (it was reported this march).

i knew this would happen sooner or later.  good to know that the story
has a happy ending.  sorry if i'm posting old news; i haven't heard this
yet, and i try to keep current on this kind of stuff.


ps- i always suspected that rr.com was a spamhause.
