long-trusted, reliable? And you use Spews? That's a contradiction. Also,
it seems to me that you are duplicating RBLs. Inform yourself what these
lists actually contain. You'll see that some of them are already part of
others you use. Also, honestly, using umpteen lists doesn't give you any
advantage over a few *really* carefully chosen ones. They are just
duplicating their results. You gain something like 1% more accuracy with
5fold more ressource usage.

I don't see how this would help you much. Why don't you whitelist those
users? You apparently know them, so ... Or just whitelist those servers,
I'm not aware that they are a source for much spam, they don't appear in
