Our data feed is rather larger than usual, being spam complaints from our
users, from which we try to identify brand new domains that keep getting
referenced in spam.

So, we block rather more domains than most people do.

Ham sites can get blocked - for example, an abused webmail site can and will
be found in lots of spam reports and sometimes if the webmail service is new
enough there will be zero ham for us to cross reference things with, as the
site might have more bot created spammer users than regular / legit users.

If these get blocked, please let us know / feel free to whitelist and we'll
investigate it (and fix it if it hasn't been fixed yet)
