I was able to whitelist mail from these people but I'm wondering, more
importantly, why they were picked up by the WS_URI_RBL rule.  I used the
new SURBL checking website and none of the URIs came up positive as far as
I could tell.  Any ideas?

The Word of the Day for Apr 23 is:

*cloud-cuckoo-land* \klowd-KOO-koo-land\ /noun/

: a realm of fantasy or of whimsical or foolish behavior


*Example sentence:
* If the boss really thinks he can up productivity and increase profit
after the company is downsized, he is living in cloud-cuckoo-land.

*Did you know?
*In Aristophanes' 5th century B.C. comedy /Birds/, Peisthetaerus (a
human) convinces the king of the birds and his followers to help him
build an ideal city juxtaposed between heaven and earth. They plan to
intercept all of the sacrifices rising from the earth to the gods on
Olympus, thereby starving the gods into cooperating with them. The newly
built city is dubbed "Nephelokokkygia," (from "nephos," meaning "cloud,"
and "kokkyx," the native European cuckoo). By the late 19th century,
English speakers had translated the town's name as "Cloud-Cuckoo-Land"
and had begun using it as a general term for any similarly unreal or
whimsical place or situation.

*Indicates the sense illustrated in the example sentence.
