Charging /users/ of a dnsbl is one thing...charging listees is another. Some folks here may remember that I've often been a supporter of *bl operators, but I absolutely cannot support this particular policy of SORBS. I know Matthew has his heart in the right place, but he's making a big mistake there and eventually someone much saner than Dean Anderson will take him to task for it -- probably in the courts -- and that'll set a precedent which harms /all/ *bl operators. As for everything /else/ Dean accuses SORBS of...well, that's all utter bullshit as usual; pay him no mind, for he will be unable to return the favor. -- J.D.
