Well, first off, you probably meant "Ryan". Second, single4you.net has
been in UC for for days already.  :-)

Agreed! Don't forget the temporal aspect of SURBL. It *was* a spammer
domain, but that doesn't mean it still *is* a spammer domain.

Well, I'm not worried about it at all, because if he has really cleaned
up his act, we won't hear from him again. Otherwise, if I get confirmed
fresh spam for single4you.net, I'll happily spend the 3 seconds it takes
to re-list, as I'm sure would many people who have read this thread. ;-)
I'll be watching my daily GetURI runs very, very closely. :-)

Even while following this thread yesterday, I whitelisted 45 domains,
and listed 24 new ones, from a ~6 hour corpus. I'm not going to let a
little bit of BS about *one* measly domain ruin my fun.

I know, I had to damn near swallow my own tongue before I recommended
de-listing them, but, the point is, if we aren't responsive to the odd
site possibly changing their act, SURBL (and even UC) will be useless.
