ORBS has a slightly different (broader and maybe better) goal then the 
the others. It actively scans the net for open mail relays, warns 
the operators of these machines multiple times with exact descriptions 
of what they are doing, trying to accomplish (ie closing open mail relays)
which problems have been found, how to fix them (plus necessary pointers
to other sites) and how to get of the list. Only then the machine is added 
to the list.
