This is often the only way to get peoples attention and get action.


Providers dont care about individual /32's and will let them sit around 
and spew nigerian scams and pill spams without any consequences.

But they will care about a /24.

Changes to the database are exported to the DNS zone files periodically, not immediately after every change.  Furthermore, after the updated database contents have been exported to the DNS zone files, it will then take up to 48 hours for the outdated DNS information to be removed from DNS caches around the world - none of these are in SORBS' control.
