For all the lists, it's both sender domain and URI's in the mail.  Any
domain found in the mail source that can be easily [as in automatically]
linked to a spammer is listed. I wrote my own URI parser for email more
than a year ago, and that's where all the data has come from.

I think I've tuned it enough so that false positives are basically
eliminated, possibly at the expense of missing a few URIs.  But that's
why people should be using multple RHSBL's. :)
