*MY* opinion on that matter doesn't count for sh*t.

Neither does yours.

The _only_ opinion that matters is that of the *owner* of the destination
mail-server.  As in "My server, *my* rules."

Quite obviously, the server operator at the place you were trying to mail
_to_ *DOES* believe that 'opinion' has a place in e-mail delivery.

Like I said, the _first_ place you should take your 'problem' is to *them*. 
*NOBODY* is 'forced' to use SORBS, or any othe blocklist.  The mail-system
owners/administrators that *CHOOSE* to do so, have made a voluntary decision
to restrict incoming mail to their system on that basis.  THEY did it, nobody
else.
