Thanks.

We need more than trap hits before adding someone.  There are a
lot of FPs that appear on traps due to forwards, abusers, etc.

I sincerely hope you guys are hand reviewing your trap data.

I'd argue strongly that human checking of the domains and
circumstances of sending is required to prevent FPs.

Also if you forward your trap message it's quite possible
the abuser will be punished:
