The PH list is relatively small, so the number of hits also i guess. The
list is recently merged so its somehow bigger since today. My experience
however is that JP also picks them out. Sites like ebayupgrade. org are
listed in JP also. You would expect them inside PH, but the point is they
are getting out anyway ;)

Today Jeff wrote on the SURBL list:

'Thanks for your feedback David.  Based on your feedback and
others, I went ahead and merged the data
in with your phishing list into

Overlap between these two lists was only 36 records, and combining
the lists has approximately doubled the size of the
to about 1000 records.'

So perhaps you get some hits now.
