Sorbs has also changed its pricing. You should only use the 
dnsbl.sorbs.net for small servers. Large amount of queries will get you 
a nice email asking you to stop and pay or get blocked.

Part of this is that all of these services cost money to pay for people 
to check for bad duds, the cost of the net is going up as advertising 
revenues realign, and lawsuits cause lawyer costs to go up.
