1) RBL is not content biased. Let me repeat that in case you are having
trouble with the sentence structure.. The RBL is not content biased.
2) Were it to become content biased, MHSC would be among the first to quit
3) The RBL is based on specific behaviour which is deemed unacceptable.
This behaviour is called spamming. Note that it *still* does not suppress
the spam. It only prevents spam from being delivered here.
