Someone has been in contact with Joe via phone and posted
to another mailing list That Zhall Not Be Named that
exactly that is happening.  The zone is dead, he's put
*.*.*.* in, he's asking people not to use it anymore.
It may be back in the future with a new network setup,
but right now consider it down.

We're working on getting him to send out a public announcement.

Yes, this is due to a massive DDOS.  At least three
of the spamfilter BLs have been so attacked this week.

Some of the networks represented here have not been
as timely about helping the BL providers with the
DDOSes as they could be.  Please keep in mind that
without dynamic BLs anti-spam folks will fall back
to sending out static block maps, which getting your
IP space out of will be difficult if not impossible.

IT IS VERY MUCH IN NETWORK OPERATORS
BEST INTEREST THAT THIS NOT HAPPEN.

Please take what measures are necessary to help
ensure that your customers are not intentionally
or neglegently DDOSing the BLs.
