You aren't wrong, but that doesn't absolve you of the responsibility to de-list in an efficient manner when you have made a mistake, or if the listing is no longer accurate (i.e. if all the spammers have been kicked off the netblock in question.) $DAYJOB lists spam filtering amongst the services we offer to our clients. I know we're using you to block IPs at the firewall, and we're probably also doing so at the server level. I am going to talk to my boss and co-workers about the impact of removing SORBS from our DNSBL list, because your replies lately have been snarky and completely unprofessional, including the reply quoted above. (Yes. It sucks that spammers are still spamming. So what?) I don't know what your problem is, but you're not making things any better by refusing to fix listings that aren't incorrect or, in some cases, never were. -- Steve Sobol, Professional Geek ** Java/VB/VC/PHP/Perl ** Linux/*BSD/Windows Apple Valley, California PGP:0xE3AE35ED It's all fun and games until someone starts a bonfire in the living room.
