Please do not include broad IPs in SURBLs.  That goes against
the way we have designed them.  If I find this happening, I will
take action to stop them.  PLEASE DO NOT DO IT!!

I will be modifying the SC data engine, if I can ever free up some
cycles, to look at the resolved IP addresses of incoming domains
and list them much sooner (like immediately) if they resolve to
commonly used IP addresses.
