ADL: Positive result when using score_only option

Hi Stephanie,

It means the ligand is really bad, or the pose is really bad. For example,
if you docked that ligand into protein A and than rescored with score_only
in protein B, you can meaningless results if proteins A and B are not
perfectly aligned (the ligand can even overlap with protein B atoms).

Hope this helps,
