Spammers have been using computers to send unsolicited messages since 1978. However, the first DNS-based blacklist (DNSBL) wasn't created until 1997 -- almost 20 years later. Since then, the practice of spamming has grown at an alarming rate. The mechanics of creating and
managing a DNSBL haven't changed all that much, but the tooling around them has changed drastically.
