Hehe, you're right about who can answer this question.
One issue is that we've only been collecting data for
a little over a month so we don't have the historical
view of some of these issues yet.  So the feedback from
folks is definitely helpful.  :)

Somewhat oddly I just added logging of the new spam
domains as they reach the threshold and get added to
the rbl as a result, just before you wrote.  So now
we will be able to see if any domains drop off the list
and come back on with the current expiration.  The log
