the never-ending fight against spam

Back when I first started RBL'ing mail at my server to fight spam, I wrote a neat little script to let me quickly and easily see how much of it I'd killed in any given day. I used to check it obsessively, but then I got pretty used to it, and quit looking at it very often. But I got kinda bored tonight and clicked... looks like there's been a MOTHERFUCKER of an upturn in activity lately.
