Hello all,

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.
