ORBS has NO MEANS, NO RIGHT and NO JUSTIFICATION to block domains just
because they do not co-operate. Period. They may block relaying hosts
within, but the approach is wrong. In dubio pro reo.

Because they are telling OTHERS not to speak to the defendants.

This will lead to the point where spammers and careless administrators
