NJABL blocklist closed for good

The NJABL blocklist has shut down for good. The zone files are empty and are expected to stay that way for a while.

Anyone using NJABL, either for yes/no delivery decisions or as part of a scoring system, should remove that blocklist from their setup.

    IMHO people owe Jon Lewis (NJABL founder and maintainer for all these years) a huge thank-you. The NJABL lists weren’t widely-used in the end, but they were properly kept up, caught spam, and didn’t cause many FPs. Long ago I quit using most of the non-professionally maintained BLs because I’d found most of them too unreliable when I didn’t want to have to watch closely. I just removed the NJABL a couple of days ago after I heard that it was closing.

    Thanks for all those years of service, Jon!

  • OTA joins the ISOC

    The Online Trust Alliance (OTA) announced today they were joining forces with the Internet Society (ISOC). Starting in May, they will operate as an initiative under the ISOC umbrella. “The Internet Society and OTA share the belief that trust is the key issue in defining the future value of the Internet,” said Internet Society President and CEO, Kathryn Brown. “Now is the right time for these two organizations to come together to help build user trust in the Internet. At a time when cyber-attacks and identity theft are on the rise, this partnership will help improve security and data privacy for users,” added Brown.No Comments

  • Friday blogging... or lack of it

    It seems the last few Friday's I've been lax on posting. Some of that is just by Friday I'm frantically trying to complete all my client deliverables before the weekend. The rest of it is by Friday I'm just tired. Today had the added complication of watching the Trumpcare debate and following how (and how soon) it would affect my company if it passed. That's been a bit distracting, along with the other stuff I posted about yesterday. I wish everyone a great weekend.1 Comment
