Show me.  Yes there may be hosts/networks "blocked" because they've
asked to be tested, but those are clearly not "false positives" either.

(Actually as I've already said I myself have what might be a "false
positive" entry in the ORBS db -- one test machine where I explicitly
allowed the ORBS test through but which should be impervious to any
relay attempts by any unauthorised party.  I wouldn't really call it a
"false positive" either though.)
