Dshield blocking generic pulls

Saw this notice on the dshield page the other day that they will be blocking generic pulls from agents if they don't have contact info in the script.  Still learning about minemeld but know dshield is one of the default miners and was just wondering how this information affects its use going forward?

Re: Dshield blocking generic pulls

Hi @Adam_Scarboro,

thanks, we have talked with ISC and initially the top 20 block list won't be affected. But from the next release of MineMeld there will be a new dshield block list miner and users will need to specify a contact email in it to comply with DShield policies. The email adress will be used in the User-Agent string when issuing requests to DShield/ISC.
