thanks for those supportive words.  note that MAPS is not defunct.  the
domain MAPS.VIX.COM is defunct, in favour of MAIL-ABUSE.ORG, which was
originally an asset of MAPS LLC, then Kelkea, and lately Trend Micro.

i've received some excellent private suggestions due to this thread.  my
two leading candidates are (a) ask dan bernstein to take over MAPS.VIX.COM
and run his own RBL there; vs (b) hack up a BIND server so that it can
return a positive answer 1% of the time (chosen randomly).
