Hmm, it is indeed in BigEvil with the e. :

bigevil.cf:uri BigEvilList_181     /\b(?:extreme-rapes\.com|excaliburproducts\.c

and it's therefore making it into be.surbl.org with the e. :


However we should be taking off the subdomain before it goes into
the SURBL form.  I'll need to check with Chris on how we can
handle that.

BTW, SURBL is not a SpamCop project, although we are using
SpamCop URI domains as a data source in the sc.surbl.org list.
