And thus we now have blacklist entries such as:

	barracuda1.aus.texas.net
	barracuda.yale-wrexham.ac.uk
	barracuda.morro-bay.ca.us
	barracuda.ci.mtnview.ca.us
	barracuda.elbert.k12.ga.us
	barracuda.fort-dodge.k12.ia.us
	barracuda.ci.garner.nc.us
	barracuda.ship.k12.pa.us

and many, many more.
Blocking based on rDNS simply because it implies that a certain piece of equipment is at that address is... not advisable.
