I don't know if this is a known issue or not.
A customer of mine contacted me and asked me some non-hardware question which I told them was best asked here where they could get better support. They got back to me saying they aren't able to use this site because:
That tool is The Abusive Hosts Blocking List (ahbl.org), which is no longer active. (example)I desperately tried to register, but all my providers IPs seem to be blacklisted by a tool
The info provided at that tool is:
So it seems some warning in April was ignored? Better fix quick!Last Notice: Wildcarding of Services Jan 1st
As promised in April, on Jan 1st, 2015, i'll be wildcarding all zones no longer in operation - this includes rhsbl.ahbl.org, dnsbl.ahbl.org, and ircbl.ahbl.org. This means that these services will return positive responses for any queries.
If you are still using these services, this may cause you to incorrectly tag e-mail as spam, or create other unintended consequences. Fix and maintain your servers, now. Do not contact us about 'removing' your domain or IP address from our lists, as there is nothing we can do for you.
The query load is still high enough that I can not justify allocating the resources necessary to support queries from people who refuse to properly maintain their mail servers.
For those who are using the old 'tor.ahbl.org' list - you've been using a DNSbl list which has been shut down for around FOUR YEARS. You should be checking to verify that the lists you use are still working or not. I removed the test entry of '220.127.116.11.tor.ahbl.org' years ago, which your monitoring systems should have noticed and warned you about.
