Matthias, I join in asking you to please reconsider your approach to misuse
prevention. Causing FN's is hardly an effective means at making the sysadmin
take notice, as they aren't losing any important mail like FP's would cause.

Blackholing is a superior approach as it causes DNS timeout delays in mail
delivery, which legitimately causes problems for the sysadmin and is more
likely to cause them to take notice that there is a problem.

Also, I too have the ability to host a high capacity mirror of DNSWL. Would
you allow us to help?
