Thanks for these.  Note that SURBLs try to reduce URIs down to
base domains (as they would be registered), so:

  afoc2091185zj.fightrxbillz.com  -> fightrxbillz.com
  military.com.appetizinggood.com -> appetizinggood.com

Doing that, sorting, etc. reduces the 447 to 284.  Of those
284, 186 are already listed in multi.surbl.org, and 4 are
whitelisted, which leaves 94:


However of those 94, 92 appear to not resolve any NS records which
means they're either not registered, had their registrations
expire, revoked, etc.  So they're not too useful for spammers.
They could appear in spams, but any web sites referenced by them
would not resolve.  The remaining 2 are:


Both of which may have legitimate uses or owners, so they
probably should not be listed.  Neither domain has any common
RBL or SBL listings.  netmechaic has 21 NANAS but they look
incidental.  kuhat has no NANAS.  (Can anyone here read Suomi?
If so can you check out the kuhat.com site?)

So it appears that if you're using multi.surbl.org in your
spam filters then it should be catching almost all of the ones
you reported which are actually usable by spammers.  Are they
getting through?  Are you hopefully using multi instead of sc

Hope this helps,
