Dean, you're perilously close to landing in _my_ procmailrc, too.


"several of AOL's mail relays were blackholed..."

Nowhere does Paul say that AOL _has signed up to *use* the RBL_.  He
says they ended up _on_ it, found out, cleaned up their act, and got
themselves back off.

I begin to think you're being _wilfully perverse_ in your
misunderstandings of things people state clearly.
