If you put a blurb about blacklists, maybe you can add a bit of info about
maybe testing them in spamassassin with a small score first. For instance I
use brbl in spamassassin, because I have some users that get FP's (as far as
they are concerned) on some lists they are in so I can't use them at the MTA
unless I want to start adding stuff to the access file.

lists the various DB's and their relative risk for FP's. I would think a new
user should stick with the low risk ones and test the rest.
