Blacklist at offline?

I´ve got some strange error messages about the comment functionality in my blog. After some debugging i found the root cause: One of my spam counter measures is the blacklist at Requests to this blacklist delivered a “Connection refused”. After disabling this function comments are functional again. In the case, your comments were rejected, don´t hesitate to try it again. PS: S9Y need some better errorhandling …. at least it should be easier to find the triggering function in S9Y, “Connection refused.Notice: Connection refused in /…/…/taegliches/bundled-libs/PEAR.php on line 848.Connection refused” isn´t really helpful.
