That's why I'm asking ... my hosts.deny is nicely filled with all the
hosts that attempted the login to my boxes, as well as the data from all
the other sites ... if a decent percentage of those were zombies that
also were used for spam delivery, it would lower the CPU cost for
blocking with the MTA using that blacklist ...
