We pay to use the datafeed service and so far its definatly worth it at
least for our customers. At first we were only using the free service as
we started offering mail scanning service to a few of our existing
customers. As the number of customer requests started to grow for spam
detection/removal ( Thanks MailScanner! ) we thought, we should pay now
and not risk loosing the service later. I'm sure they would remove us
eventually from their blacklist, but it would be a hassle and the
existing customers would bear the brunt of it. Pay now or pay later,
everyone pays the piper.
