  The RABL (pronounced "rabble") server is a statistical, machine-automated and
  up-to-the-second blackhole list server designed to monitor global network
  activity and make decisions based on network spread and infection rate -
  that is, abuse from an address which has been reported by a number of
  participating networks. This is in far contrast to how most other
  blacklists function, where fallable humans (many with political agendas) must
  process thousands of reports and make decisions - many times after the fact.
  The RABL is fully reactive to new threats and can block addresses within
  seconds of widespread infection - good to know in this world of drone PCs
  and stolen accounts. The RABL server blacklists addresses until they have
  cleared a minimum duration (an hour by default) without any additional
  reporting, making the appeals process as simple as "fix your junk". The RABL
  is designed to function via automated machine-learning spam filters, such as
  Bayesian filters. Each participating network is granted write authentication
  in the blackhole list, to prevent abuse. A client tool is also provided.
  The RABL client is the lookup and reporting component of the RABL. It is
  necessary for performing streaming connection lookups and writing to the RABL
  (assuming you have an account).
