Definitely on the same page. My thoughts are to build on the block
notification rules to implement code that blocks the DNSBL queries for 1
hour. However, that's kind of a phase II. And since I doubt there will
be consensus from DNSBL operators, it'll really be a one off thing per
DNSBL to implement unless some alignment of planets occurs that I doubt
is even in motion ;-)
