I've enabled tagging xbl in spamassassin more than a month ago and out
of 38 messages on d-d with sa-score <=10 that were tagged by SBL there
were 12 nonspams.
 Due to my usage pattern the spam/ham score is not correct, only
about 50% of the original spam is still present in the mailbox,
changing SBL's success rate from 12/38 to ~12/76.
 I move away anything with bigger score.
NMUs aren't an insult, they're not an attack, and they're
not something to avoid or be ashamed of.
