- Why DNSWL started returning "listed, high trust"

Might have been obvious, but while you're disabling queries when receiving an
IP response indicating you're blocked, it should probably also disable queries
when receiving the REFUSED rcode.

Anybody feel like doing some testing to figure out how and why DNS queries are
tripled when REFUSED is returned by the DNS server? Possibly not even related
to spamassassin (*might* be entirely other software) but weird.
