Old spam ID system issues unusual final call

The Open Relay Database (ORDB), which was put to bed at the end of 2006, has apparently started returning false positives for every IP address that gets run through it.The idea seems to be to give spam filter admins a whack upside the head (using a spammer list that hasn't been updated for more than a year = bad idea), but unfortunately there will be a bunch of blameless users sitting there wondering why they aren't getting any email.

The Open Relay Database (ORDB), which was put to bed at the end of 2006, has apparently started returning false positives for every IP address that gets run through it.

The idea seems to be to give spam filter admins a whack upside the head (using a spammer list that hasn't been updated for more than a year = bad idea), but unfortunately there will be a bunch of blameless users sitting there wondering why they aren't getting any email.

A harsh way of going about it, but probably worthwhile...
