For those using the ORBS service, I recommend that you look into Paul 
Vixie's MAPS project:


MAPS has a somewhat better reputation for responsible blacklist
management.  The ISP I use from home is ORBS blacklisted.  Not because of
open relays, but because they won't allow ORBS to randomly probe them.
