Reading the FAQ
"What is http:BL?
Http:BL is a way for website administrators to take advantage of the data generated by Project Honey Pot and keep malicious or suspicious IPs off their websites. The service works by publishing DNS records for IPs we have seen conducting suspicious or malicious behavior online. Website administrators can then use this data in order to restrict access to their web servers for these IPs."
Somewhere I read that the Http:BL includes only results of Honey Pots to "maintain the data validity in the database."
"Is this another DNSBL for mail servers?
No. Http:BL reports on IP addresses used by harvesters, comment spammers, and other suspicious robots visiting web pages. It does not include the IP addresses of the mail servers used by spammers. There are lots of great mail server DNSBLs out there, including those maintained by Spamhaus, SURBL, Spamcop, etc. We are not trying to recreate the wheel."
This would suggest that you are not using the Http:BL as intended.
