|What does DNSBL mean?
A DNS-based Blackhole List (DNSBL, Real-time Blackhole List or RBL), is
a means by which an Internet site may publish a list of IP addresses, in
a format which can be easily queried by computer programs on the Internet.
As the name suggests, the technology is built on top of the Internet DNS
or Domain Name System. DNSBLs are chiefly used to publish lists of addresses
linked to spamming. Most mail transport agent (mail server) software can
be configured to reject or flag messages which have been sent from a site
listed on one or more such lists. (Source)

also trying to keep updated with the "Tor"-network
proxies, a network that forgets that anonymousity can be a problem when
we are speaking abuse.
