Another day another dead blacklist
It is morning in the channel. The regular crowd is around discussing the usual.
JK, smart, competent head of deliverability at an ESP asks: Anyone familiar with SECTOOR EXITNODES listings and have insight into what’s going on if listed?
ME: Uh, that’s the Tor Exit Nodes list. They think your IP is used by Tor. That’s all sorts of weird. Let me do some digging.
5 minutes of google searches, various dig commands and a visit to the now non-existent sectoor.de website show that the sectoor.de domain expired and is now parked.
ME (back in channel): It looks like the blacklist domain expired and is now parked. So they’re listing the world and nothing to worry about. Not your problem, and not anything you can fix.
JK: Like a UCEProtect fiasco – not just us but everyone?
ME: No, more like the spamcannibal fiasco. The domain expired and so it’s listing the world.
ME: The world would be a better place without MXToolbox worrying about every stupid blocklist. Or even if they would follow the blocklist RFC check for expired domains before panicking the world.
