Isn't that backwards? You have Junkbuster forward requests to wwwoffled.
Junkbuster will only make requests for URLs that aren't blocked, so
wwwoffled will never see a request for Junkbuster-blocked URLs.

If wwwoffled requests from junkbuster, then all the Junkbuster "This URL
is blocked" messages will be cached by wwwoffled...
