We've had our moments with SORBS, Matthew is a very approachable person.
Things get sorted out pretty quickly, generally within a few days,
Matthew also has others who help him and one of them is an obnoxious

I do agree though, the requirment to have X TTL and 'static' or non
'dsl' 'dial' in DNS is a bit too far, I understand this is for

still use them, as do many large carriers ion this country, because the
use  of RBL's is for one reason, to STOP the wanker, and SORBS along
with spamcop and spamhaus and njabl go a very long way to prevent
