I simply asked if Telstra was still being black-holed. I got my
answer( they are) and it is done via a manual entry in the ORBS

Now for the follow-up question, is anyone else, besides Telstra,
serving OZ?
AboveNet already confirmed that they aren't.

If the answer to that is negative, then we ought to re-think the
black-hole issue. Certainly, since my client is doing substantial
traffic with OZ, I will recommend that they drop ORBS like a bad
habit. It's impacting revenue. The latencies to OZ are bad
enough, without having to deal with black-hole happy fanatics.
SPAM is a side-issue here and not really relevent to losing
connectivity with an entire continent.
