I understand the process and how it shouldn't be possible for errors
to occur.  Please note I was talking about RBL and Orbz both.  Also
note that 100% accurate means the filter lets all of my email through
and only blocks SPAM.

That means if Orbz blocks my friend's email, it's not 100% accurate,
regardless of why. Filters only have meaning from my point of view: they
have to block SPAM and only SPAM.

Sorry if I didn't make that clear.
