I would agree.

Until there is some RBL consensus on a "disabled" answer && code in SA to deal
with it && it doesn't break the currently supported versions, there is no way
an RBL that purposefully causes FPs due to overusage can be considered for
default enabling.

Again, my understanding is that this is a good RBL that has promise and should
be considered by Admins, though.

Are we on the same page?
