I know that certain large DNS providers (i.e. google and level3) have either been banned or have voluntarily blocked spamhaus queries by their resolvers. We're currently in discussion with spamhaus and I wanted to see how others may have handled this.

They seem to be doing that a lot of late.  They also contacted my
employer and demanded $100k/yr(?) for having a "Use Spamhaus RBL" in our
software.  Next version will not have the ability to query Spamhaus
unless a user configures it themselves in the "Custom RBL" settings.


? = could have been more, not sure without checking with the CEO, result
was the same.
