I use a client side spamfilter, and I use the SCbl among a number of
other dnsbl/s, and I use whitelisting, and I never have any false
positives. So using the scbl is fine for me and your recommendation to
not to 'others' which includes me is therefore ill-advised.
Each person should choose their own blocklists which affect their own
mail -- and should whitelist however they choose to whitelist, for
example I have no need to whitelist yahoo groups servers.
You think a blocklist should whitelist something -- which I think is a
zany and inconceiveable idea.
I think a blocklist should blocklist, and the chooser and user of
blocklists should select or deselect blocklists accordingly and
whitelist by address, domainname, or IP block according to hir needs.
And blocklist similarly if needed.
