Ever tried running S.A on servers that do serious work, and want your mail 
out of the queue and delivered the same week ? :)
(I do run SA on the machines that can handle it though, but thats like 2 
out of many)

I use SORBS, spamhaus and spamcop, I trust them pretty much, SORBS can be 
an issue with hotmail at times, when it gets to level 2 complaint level we 
remove SORBS until its cleared up. I rather not waste any more resources 
on privacy invading dweebs than I have to, hence why I prefere MTA.
