Actually I got a response quickly from a list member who represent sorbs
at some level. Do you really think opinion has a place in mail
delivery? What if the USPS decided any magazine you subscribed to was
suddenly unfit for delivery and decided it should blocked (thrown away)?

Anyone on the list involved with this project? I need to speak to
someone ASAP. No, I am not going to pay your ridiculous fine.
SORBS is a one-man operation out of Australia.
I really doubt that he participates in the NORTH AMERICAN network operators
SORBS -- like _any_ other blocklist -- is simply an expression of opinion.
if you feel that "somebody" is 'wrongly' blocking mail because of a SORBS
listing, your _first_ step should be to contact *that* party, and request
that either (a) they stop using SORBS, or (b) that they 'whitelist' you.
*THEY* are the ones that made the decision to block your mail to their
Contact means for SORBS *is* provided on the web-site. it works reliably.
Be advised, however, that a 'need' on your part does not translate to
urgency on the part of anyone else.
Note: *Nobody*, not even SORBS, says you 'have to' make that charitable
contribution. All the 'spam' listings _do_ "age off" the SORBS
Caveat: I have nothing to do with SORBS. I don't use it -- or *any* blocklist,
for that matter -- myself (I use other means that are better suited for _my_
requirements). I don't even know the operator thereof. Everything I've
said is based on published and publicly available information.
