I'll give you that.  I'd been using zen for years, and sbl-xbl for years before
that.  When I changed my resolvers to Google from my current provider's (for
performance reasons, and not just my MX), I didn't go to to check
and make sure it was ok to do so.  It never dawned on me that there would be a
problem.  I guess because I'm not a dns monkey (not a racial slur, think
training monkeys) it just didn't occur to me that there would be a problem.

The most interesting part about this, actually, is that when I switched my
resolvers back today, I found Google was apparently blocking them also,
Centurylink's dsl customer resolvers.  This happened within the past 3 months.
I don't know what the reason is, but I doubt it's based on query volume given
that these resolvers serve residential and small business dsl customers.  They
were working fine before I switched to Google resolvers.

I think it's working again now, though I'll have to wait and see, given my mail
flow and the fact that zen and postgrey only get table scraps, and not many at
that.  ;)
