     The 18 RBL checks is a major problem.  It can take up 30 seconds
for a DNS lookup to timeout.  You need to make sure that all of them
still work as RBLs tend to come and go.  Better yet, you really
shouldn't be using more then six.  The law of diminishing returns
starts to kick in really hard after that.  18 is really excessive.
