as the co-inventor of the Realtime Blackhole List (RBL) and Response Policy
Zone (RPZ) technologies i request, yet again, that everyone please stop
referring to either one as a "block" list. that's an invented term, invented
by marketing departments, and is both technically inaccurate and hazardous to
civil liability.  blocking is something we might *do*, but is not part of some
set of things we might *have*.

that said, i have written previously on the subject of your question:

so, while i also use some RPZ's from spamhaus and abusix, i get most of my
results by negating any dns name which points to an IP address in the spamhaus
DROP or cymru BOGONS lists (see second link above.)
