In particular, I have not received any reply to several different emails 
sent to info at dshield.org (about problems on web site and issues raised in 
this posting) and I have not received any of the usual feedback from 
comments posted to incidents.org's contact page. -> -> We suspect that the 
problem is on our end and is caused by our rejecting sending MTAs w/o a 
valid hostname. Is anyone else having similar problems?

Whenever the list arrives here, it lists it as (possibly forged). I don't 
whitelist and filter very little, so it goes thru. It's Dshield, but this 
is the only valid mail I get that has the "possibly forged" tag, which 
usually means something's up with the hostname, as is commonly seen with 
spammers. I'm not sure why it does this.
