even better.
it blocks ligitimate e-mail very efficiently.

for them - legitimate - means coming from the "wheel of friends" which 
means all other "free" huge services.

everything else may pass, or may not, who knows.

of course it's not just gmail problem, but all of it's "friends" too, and 
- quite often - of smaller mail services.

using spamassassin as antispam looks safe (i'm using it quite long), using 
automatic IP-based blockers are bad.
spamassassin weights probability of being spam giving point.
when it classifies mail badly by one rule, and well by others it still 
does the good job.
