"Ruleset" is a somewhat fuzzy term that depends on context - it could 
refer to a single rule, a cluster of rules in a single file, a group of 
files, or "all active rules files".  It's not a formal definition within 
SpamAssassin.  In this case it's referring to one rule - tflags are only 
set on a per-rule basis.

Any net-based rule is one that relies on a working Internet connection 
to do a data lookup - most commonly DNS lookups, but rules for eg 
Vipul's Razor (RAZOR_* rules), DCC, or Pyzor are also considered net 
rules since they do a lookup against a network service somewhere.
