    OK, I stand corrected. ORBS is agressive enough - if the entire
    world had been using it we would have been saved.
Well, not really saved, but at least we would have had a
*lot* less problems and spam.

    However, nothing is said about what bad things would have happened
    to the systems/people that were blackholed. Did they get the info
    or were they just put onto the blackhole list without prior notice.
What I know about it is that they put a host on the list
and at the same time notify postmaster@localhost.

    And, how long will it take to undo the ORBS ban?
Within one day.

    As I said, I've contacted most of the Relay's Postmaster and some
    of them did fix their systems, but when I now test for ORBS too I
    find that they ARE STILL ON THE ORBS BLACK LIST.
Are you absolutely sure that:
a) they indeed *did* close their relay?
b) they notified ORBS about that?
ORBS only takes a host off the list when they get a
notification from the host's administrator, and even
then only when a check shows that the host is indeed
closed for third-party relaying.
