I realize this isn't a "Firewall Wizards" issue, per se, but many of you
may use DNS blocklists in your mail server configs and maybe don't read
news.admin.net-abuse.email or another forum in which you might see

The full text of Ben's announcement can be seen at:
(Apologies for the long lines.)
Somebody on the postfix-users mailing list claims to have contacted
Ben directly and received confirmation that the above announcement is
the real deal.
Note: The easynet.nl lists were formerly wirehub.net. If you've still
got wirehub.net DNSbl entries in your MTA configs: Remove them now.
They've been invalid for *months*.
