[SURBL-Announce] ANNOUNCE: New whitelist source: public companies' domains

I've added a new whitelist source: domains of publically-traded
companies listed at dmoz and Google:

  http://www.dmoz.org/Business/Major_Companies/Publicly_Traded/
  http://directory.google.com/Top/Business/Major_Companies/Publicly_Traded/

(Public listing in this context means companies that can sell
stock on U.S. exchanges.  It includes mostly U.S. and some
foreign companies, from large to small.)

Each yields lists of about 4300 or so of mostly the same domains
which are now all excluded from SURBLs.  Here are the extracted
dmoz and Google public company domain lists:

  http://spamcheck.freeapp.net/whitelists/public-companies-domains.dmoz.sort
  http://spamcheck.freeapp.net/whitelists/public-companies-domains.google.sort

The scripts which produce these are at:

  http://spamcheck.freeapp.net/whitelists/public-companies/grab-dmoz
  http://spamcheck.freeapp.net/whitelists/public-companies/grab-google

They're called from a cron job nightly to help keep the lists
up to date.

These new whitelists hit only a few production SURBL domains
(at 14 out of about 40k records):

autoweb.com
cott.com
egreetings.com
fs.com
infousa.com
insweb.com
ivillage.com
learningtree.com
mediabay.com
net.com
netcreations.com
nutrisystem.com
scholastic.com
spss.com

Interestingly, the 6dos data in ds.surbl.org hit a mostly
different set:

alloy.com
befree.com
commtouch.com
digitalimpact.com
doubleclick.com
elsitio.com
euniverse.com
harrisinteractive.com
herbalife.com
infousa.com
lifeminders.com
mediaplex.com
ncen.com
netcreations.com
netiq.com
networkcommerce.com
pcmall.com
real.com
uslec.com

But the hits against 6dos are also few (at 19 out of about 87k
records).
