Sorry, hate to pick nits, but we have 13 relay attempts from ORBS in our
maillog between 9p last night up until 4:50 today.

Since 6 Jan, there have been 113 relay attempts from orbs.   Or, better
put over 10 a day on average.

This doesn't seem like "once every 2 weeks" let alone once every 2 months.

(Note:  I am not saying that I have an opinion re: orbs one way or
another.  I'm just providing a data point.)
