Right, so, how is THAT a false positive, it is a justifiable listing if
they became part of the problem.

I have an automated script that runs over all of our mail servers log
files daily searching for IP's that send to
known spamtrap addresses and also on my private server (this domain),
addresses that never existed, and can't exist (marked as 'baduser' in
our adduser scripts), those it finds are automatically entered into our
local DNSBL which is used by other Uni's, ISP's and corporations over
here, publicly accessible, but not advertised. I get a daily diff so I
see the new entries, but I don't review/host/whois them, its just an
interesting "count how many new entries" really and its typically 8 to
15 a day, and, AFAIC, they can stay in there forever because they are
clearly miscreants.
