example after 1st paragraph

In the rsync example: # rsync rsync.dsbl.org::dsbl/bind-list.dsbl.org. "bind-list.dsbl.org." should be "bind-list.dsbl.org ." The trailing dot is the local directory, meaning that an intervening space is required. More importantly, it should be noted that this is only an *example* of one way that blackhole list services provide list updates. In this particular case, dsbl.org no longer provides BIND formatted lists. An updated example using the current format supported by dsbl.org would be: # rsync rsync.dsbl.org::dsbl/rbldns-list.dsbl.org . Of course, there can be no guarantees that this won't change again. To reiterate, this is just an example.
