i advocated doing the *kind of stuff* that i do.
i've also advocated that people make their own choices as to which RBLs or
anti-spam rules are appropriate for their systems in their environment.
nowhere have i advocated that anyone must do everything exactly as i do and use
exactly the same RBLs etc that i do. in fact, that's the exact opposite of
what i've been saying.
