Everybody is out to do whats best for their own network, if you said I 
think its rude you use an RBL that may or may not list you, is it rude? 
NO! its not!

I also do not find it rude for those useing SV that want to ask my smtp, 
as *I* understand they are trying to protect their networks and support 
any action they take in doing so.

I dont care if someone uses it against us as I know they are only trying 
to protect their customers from spam, I don't (as yet) do it, but support 
those who do use it.
