Ooh, now that is interesting. I had assumed that the DNSBLs only  
covered SMTP spam sources, but on reflection I suppose SMTP is a dead  
protocol these days in the wider Internet.

For the benefit of those of us who have been lucky to Recover from  
ISP work and now herd blogs[0], would you be so kind as to share  
which blacklists are worthwhile and worth consulting on this front?

[0] Before you ask, no, it's no easier, in fact arguably harder work,  
although the pay and hours are better. But yes, we're hiring.
