Do note that Hostkarma WHITE is not part of the stock rule-set.
Moreover, it is *your* score of a whopping -2.1 for the third-party DNS
BL test you're complaining about, that results in FNs. Last I checked
(which is a while ago, granted), I wouldn't score it that low, not even

Your score, your trust. If you find yourself in the need to work around
your own trust measures, maybe the underlying issue is deeper than a
good game of whack-a-mole. And if the WHITE listing is going to be
corrected in a timely manner, the rules are obsolete -- yet here to stay
along with the hate-laden descriptions, waiting in archives for click-
happy monkeys to copy-n-paste without even thinking.

I have read quite a few comments by legitimate receivers in this thread.
Makes a score of 4 feel over-board to say the least, requested by $nick
or not.

Also note, that my previous assessment is not limited to the score.

char *t="\10pse\0r\0dtu\0.@ghno\x4e\xc8\x79\xf4\xab\x51\x8a\x10\xf4\xf4\xc4";
main(){ char h,m=h=*t++,*x=t+2*h,c,i,l=*x,s=0; for (i=0;i<l;i++){ i%8? c<<=1:
(c=*++x); c&128 && (s+=h); if (!(h>>=1)||!t[s+h]){ putchar(t[s]);h=m;s=0;
