Iverson is legendary, true.
But when people evaluate sc, they never seem to quote the "directions"
frequently cited in this ng: "The SCBL is aggressive and often errs on
the side of blocking mail. When implementing the SCBL, provide users
with the information about how the SCBL and your mail system filter
their email. Ideally, they should have a choice of filtering options.
Many mailservers operate with blacklists in a 'tag only' mode, which is
preferable in many situations."
So when Iverson says, "My specific problem with lists like Spamcop is
that they take bad measurements and *try to sell them as good,*" that's
just not true.
As I understand it, the scbl is useful in a scoring system that also
uses other highly trusted blocklists. Perhaps the most useful feature of
the scbl is, though aggressive and without manual oversight before
listing, the listings are timely.
