So you don't research DNSBLs before implementing their use? You aren't concerned with reasons an IP or range could be listed, how fresh the data is or isn't, how much collateral damage a certain BL inflicts, etc.?

Blindly adding BLs just because the other guy uses it is outright negligence. You deserve everything you got for doing it. If you *had* researched (i.e. visit the home page of) the various BLs you're using, you'd have found out about IM shutting down before you ever even turned it on.
