Para aquellos que "luchamos" contra el SPAM, esto es extremadamente util.

If you have checks against relays.ordb.org configured in your mail server or 
spam filtering software, please stop querying the list immediately. Use of the 
list will no longer block any unwanted spam, and the nameservers listed in the 
domain registration are likely overwhelmed with traffic. This is especially 
heightened due to the fact that the list was in wide, popular use, and also 
that it was so recently retired.

3/26/08 Update: ORDB has "listed the entire world" -- returning any query with 
a "listed" response. The result is that if you still have ORDB in your mail 
server config files, you're now blocking 100% of your inbound mail. For anyone 
still trying to "use" ORDB, you're not going to receive any inbound mail until 
you disable queries to it.
