You said it: judgement.
I agree with SORBS putting dynamic IP's on the blacklist.
If you have a dynamic address you can "smarthost" with your ISP.
I do not have a dynamic address and SORBS can only be 50%
sure that it is or is not dynamic.
For that sheer fact SORBS should send you a warning:
"you will be backlisted if you dont do xxx"
and I could fix that problem in no time.
The problem is "something" is getting to their head
(and havent we seen this b4 many times???).
I understand, too, that they need to be a little arrogant,
it comes with the territory, but what they are doing is bullying.
