Nope, that incident was March 2011.

I actually was thinking along the lines of the dev@ threads "Other DNSBL's",
Oct 2009, and "3.3.2 and MSPIKE", Dec 2010, and similar discussions about when
and how to include new DNSBLs.

DNSBLs do cause additional network traffic and load, which in particular for
larger sites is a real concern. Any addition like this definitely needs to be
communicated load and clear in the release announcement.

Regardless, whether excessive queries might result in FP return values.
