As noted by Darxus, this is PURPOSEFUL behavior to return true statements for
what they consider abuse.

"DNSWL announced this behavior here:
http://www.dnswl.org/news/archives/24-Abusive-use-of-dnswl.org-infrastructure-enforcing-limits.html"

If they had chosen to add a time-delay, block answers or return a false answer
that did not trigger the rules, I would support it.

1 - Do we have any other RBLs enabled by default that return False Positives
once a threshold is hit?

2 - IMO they need to be disabled by default -OR- documented far stronger.

Unless someone steps up with some ideas, I'm going to disable DNSWL by default
very shortly.
