Hi Jeff,

If you'd like to publicly accuse the UC effort of doing "bad things" or
listing "arbitrary FPs", please educate yourself on the policies of UC.
They are publicly listed at http://uc.sasknow.com/criteria.shtml, and
they're being actively developed through discussion on the UC mailing
list, which is an open list to which anyone can subscribe and
participate. In particular, one will note that all domains are hand
checked before being added, and that domains suitable for blocklists
like SURBL do not belong in UC.

I'm sure people value your opinions. So, please refrain from making
baseless statements about a public effort it seems you know very little
