Neither do I. At least not more surbl-type lists that are served by 

I'd prefer just one surbl.org-list, serving entries from a few sources 
all confirming to the strict "we do not want any FPs" philosophy of 
surbl. One manually checked list that can relatively safely be used to 
block/drop email, rather than just score email.

Then I'd like to see a lot of surbl-type lists *not* served by 
surbl.org, that are provided based on different philosophies - more 
aggressive, accepting a higher degree of collateral damage, etc.

Just like we have with RBLs.

I want an SBL type surlb list, and I think surbl.org is the prime 
candidate for that.

But I also want a SPEWS type surbl list, and I don't think that it 
should or could be done/served by surbl.org.


Having more and more different surbl.org lists that we try to fit into 
the same basic philosophy of "no FPs" is just complicating things and 
confusing existing and potential users.
