Not sure how that's relevant since we're doing URI domains, not
zombie IPs.  IOW we're doing destination URIs, not source IPs.

To me they're not too connected.  The hosting of the URI and
the sending of spam are relatively de-coupled (not connected).

Most hard core spammers use a domain for a couple days then
abandon it.  These spammers don't use their domains a year;
they treat them as disposable.
