You should check your facts before you display such ignorance....
(ORBS is a replacement for what dorkslayers was, but ORBS is not, and
was never, IMRSS)
The new dorkslayers.com is under new management. To quote:

Of course! How could you conclude otherwise? :-)
Note that my *home* server uses not just the mechanically verified
relays list offered by ORBS, but also the adjunct lists offered under
the orbs.org domain, such as this one:

So far both the true mechanically verified ORBS list, as well as the
adjunct lists like that one, have done me far more good than not.
I really do want to modify the behaviour of those running open relays.
I also wish to avoid knowingly being a participant in any theft of
service or act of fraud.
