I should add that I fully understand that there are rogue
ISPs, rogue name servers, rogue netblocks, etc., all of
which deserve something much stronger than simply being
rejected, blocked or blackholed.  But SBL aside, it can be
difficult to successfully identify the true bad guys using
the above without catching too many innocents in the same

That said, I use several of these other RBLs myself.  I'm
not necessarily opposed to them, but feel our approach with
SURBL *adds* something hopefully new and effective.
