Note the RBN list it links to says it's obsolete for 2 years.  (Other
Emerging Threat lists are available, as transparent aggregation of a
very small number of trusted sources.  Still useful but rather less
ambitious.  Unfortunately the documentation still describes the
obsolete lists.  Maybe somewhere else is more active).

It sounds like one needs a list to stay up to date on which blocklists
to use :).
