But, for me, SURBL is much better than plain smtp rbls because its collateral 
damage is very, very, very low... regretfully, I can't play the BOFH and I 
have to let pass legit e-mail from 'bad' or 'regular' ISPs (most ISPs in 
Argentina, including the largest ones would be in these categories, and I 
can't reject e-mail from the largest ISPs in the country).

I'm using relatively high scores for SURBL (between 3.0 and 4.0) and couldn't 
be doing this with a higher rate of FPs... 

See the thread 'Rule for email of "$43321" ?' in SpamAssassin-Users list... 
SURBL caught most or all of them because it was highly scored...

I'll happily let SPEWS and the other IP RBLs deal with this.
