In almost all cases, notifications that they have sent to
abuse@localhost have related to instances where they have
been misled by simple SMTP header forgery, careful header analysis
having revealed that there was no easynet user or network involvement
whatsoever.

Using their DNSBL as the basis of any form of spam filtering solution
would be a spectacularly bad idea.
