unfortunately, that *still* didn't stop people from using it, which
translated into an unresolvable headache for me as a sp. if you don't
consider a blacklist to be usable by the public, don't publish it. however,
publishing a draconian blacklist seems to get you a 'hardcore' label/clout
in certain circles and is thus irresistible for some.
