Wow, it looks like some of the DMOZ data can't be trusted. Some of those
domains in this WS blocklist are pure spammers. 

adultmovienetwork.com has 135+ NANAS hits, is listed in spamhaus, ect.....

These need to ALL be checked carefully. Do not use DMOZ to autowhitelist. I
will check A-C in this list. Any takers to check the rest?

1173 FPs......I doubt it.
