Submission + - More Evidence that Blacklists are bad (sans.org) 1

stry_cat writes: Here's a brief summary with good links detailing how the Austrian domain registry ended up on the Spamhaus Block List.

From the article:

"Altogether this seems to be a big mess, being driven by different goals, points of view, and also ego. Using blacklists is a two edged sword (which has also been stated on isc.sans.org numerous times), but this story only makes me wonder for the sanity of the whole system."

I'm sure /.ers will agree that it is a big mess. Take heed if you use a blacklist as spamhaus.org isn't the only one that suffers from delusions of grandeur.
