I'd rather prevent the known spammers connecting, we also use DUL lists as
well, apart from SORBS listing hotmail, Ive never in many many many years
had a single problem, most users are glad to be protected (as best we can)
On the smaller use machines where we use MS with SA, we have low scoring
of 3 tag, and high scoring of 12 delete it.
