I don't have a tool to identify "odd IPs", I just see it <gd&r>
If SA can't do this Apache would die from a roaring RIDICULUS.

You could of course create a new list *.combo.surbl.org, and
(ab)use bit 0 in multi.surl.org as THE "combo bit".  Same idea
as for all other individual lists.

It's not too bad with rxwhois, nobody uses it to delete mails,
and actually it would be only a bogus error message if you do
this.  Breaking serious "multi" applications would be bad.

You don't need "multi" for testing, you could use the future
"combo" list for temporary test results 127.?.?.?.  Bye, Frank
