Hmm, I don't like the idea of maintaining a set a negated scores. The following
approach avoids this. Also, we really only need a single BLOCKED indicator
rule, not three.
urirhssub URIBL_BLOCKED multi.uribl.com. A 255
meta URIBL_$(color) __URIBL_$(color) && ! URIBL_BLOCKED
Plus, of course, rename the current rules to make them non-scoring sub-rules as
used in the above meta.
An alternative to the meta rule method above, the existing urirhssub rules
might simply be changed to use another available option as subtype, instead of
the current bitmask. Particularly, if a single URI will not be listed in
multiple colors, an exact dot-quad would do easily instead of the bitmask.
Just avoid the rules triggering on the BLOCKED value. Exclude that, don't add
more rules to negate scores.
An additional benefit is, that along with the BLOCKED rule hitting, the admins
might eventually wonder why the DNSBL itself never hits. (The approach with
negative scores will make the DNSBL appear to be stunningly effective glimpsing
over the stats.)
