Yup... but anyway, I concord with Jeff & Steven... SURBL is a list of
domains that ONLY appeared in SPAM and NEVER appeared in HAM for
whatever definition of HAM a luser MAY have...

I'd gladly blow flowgo away the Internet, but as long as only one of
the lusers of a very large ISP where I have MailScanner+SA+SURBL
configured complains that a mail he solicited (because he is
completely stupid) got blocked, I have a headache...

This is, I think, one more of the reasons to have the 'unconfirmed'
graylist available that we're talking about in another thread right
now...
