But if there is backlog on spamruns, and a lot of times you see runs 
spread over various days, then its still annoying. The spam itself cant do 
anything, url is dead, but you still get the spam. I would suggest since 
the zones are somehow small anyway, to keep those and put the 31 day grace 
period on those. Autoremove them after that but not earlier...
