Alot of us did. I thought about posting it to nanog, but then I actually
researched the issue a bit, and discovered that securityfocus' listerver is
*not* in the ORBS database at this time.

Sounds like FUD to me.
As an ORBS user and a BugTraq subscriber, let me tell you it IS in the database, but you can't find it "individually", because its in a "netblock" entry...

narn:~ # host 207.126.127.68
68.127.126.207.IN-ADDR.ARPA domain name pointer lists.securityfocus.com
narn:~ # host 68.127.126.207.relays.orbs.org
68.127.126.207.relays.orbs.org has address 127.0.0.4

So let me just reiterate that it ISN'T FUD, they really are listing all of above.net, and I really did stop receiving BugTraq because of it. :)
