blars.org is down? That's good news! One of my servers was on his
extortion list. In fact, all IP addresses of that provider were. They
and I refused to pay.
Regarding this bug, it's normal that RBLs are taken down and then
blacklist the entire address space. I've had this happen with my RBL
checker every few months.
