For me the problem is that several blocked Object warnings are for dead or
fake addresses, so they are immediately rejected (and I receive the error
message), or they are from almost legit mailing lists, so I suppose they
really do not care for the warnings I generate.

Editing the code is not a big issue (I noticed that the instructions are
already there, commented), besides the fact that I should/must remember to
re-edit it at every upgrade.
