According to their web site:
DSBL is GONE and highly unlikely to return. Please remove it from your
mail server configuration.
DSBL was a blocklist specialized in listing open relays and open
proxies. To put it simply, DSBL listed IP addresses of computers that
could be tricked into sending spam by anybody. This was a very
successful strategy. Nowadays open relays and open proxies are rare,
spammers hardly ever use them any more and no software seems to come
with an open-by-default policy any more.
