yes, but it's been done before.

And oddly enough, it was a terrible idea the first time, and hasn't
gotten any better in the intervening months.  I suppose going down in
a blaze of glory might be appealing in the sleep-deprived haze of the

netblock and be done with it.  Returning for every query
does NOTHING but convince more people that volunteer blacklist
providers like SPEWS are more trouble than they're worth.
