Yesterday morning, I noticed mail-abuse.org appeared to be down
(unreachable). I checked again, and it's still unreachable. In fact, I
can't even reach its name server.

I did some more looking last night, and it seems it's not down, it's just
unreachable from my network. Even stranger, it's only unreachable from
Atlantic.Net's primary ARIN block of 209.208.0.0/17. Traceroutes die at

MFN have a history of dropping in blackholes for unsolicited relay tests...
are you sure your njabl experiment hasn't pissed off someone at MFN enough
to drop you in?
