I doubt it. Although I don't reject email on an SCBL listing, because of
"false positives", what counts as a "false positive" is perspective
dependent. What I consider a "false positive" is an email tagged as spam,
which isn't spam. What SpamCop would consider a "false positive", is a
sever listed for abuse which was not abusive.
What that means is that email from an abusive server will be tagged by my
MTA, using the SCBL, whether I consider it spam, or not.
