 From what I can see pyzor is having problems...there's only one server 
and I can never "pyzor ping" it...always times out and I've not had a 
pyzor score in my spam for weeks...

I know certain people have offered some server space/bandwidth to the 
maintainer but the offer doesn't seem to have been taken up...

I'm considering turning it off and getting razor2 going instead (i've 
already got dcc)
