SORBS SPAM, do I have to bother?

Roland Plüss-2
I recently noticed SORBS having my IP listed. All other blacklists I'm
tracking with MXToolBox and others are fine. I never heard of SORBS nor
did I get every any rejection replies due to them. I read though lots of
bad reviews about that blacklist on the net while researching. Delisting
is also impossible.

Do I have to bother about this list or is it a crappy blacklist I should
not care about?

If I should bother how is one supposed to delist an IP if there is no
email contact and broken menus/forms?

SORBS is typically not used to veto email all by itself. That's
probably why you don't see your mail being blocked.  SORBS may be
useful in a scoring system.

You should care.
If your IP is listed, it means that mail is going somewhere it shouldn't, typically due to a purchased, dirty list.
If SORBS lists you … others will probably follow in time.

The more painful listings auto-expire after 48 hours of no new abusive traffic.

Aloha,
Michael.

Sorbs can be devilish.... and you should be concerned. My first question to you
though is do you have a signup process and does it have a captcha? If you do
and do not include a captcha, you should first resolve that by installing a captcha.
Most likely sorbs will say that they have an email that proves that you have
spammed. But they use some underhanded methods for actually putting you into
a spam trap, and then place the blame on you. Personally I think you should do
everything you can to clear your "web name" from this list, the longer you are
listed the better the chance of another service jumping on the GET YOU spamwagon!

Review the delisting page:
http://www.sorbs.net/delisting/overview.shtml

Create an account:
http://www.sorbs.net/cgi-bin/support
and thus a support ticket regarding your IP address, BE NICE but use wisdom,
and no matter how long it goes on, keep your cool!

I really hate it if people directly quote stuff to me instead of to the
mailing list. So here is the post.

Comments about this statement? Opinions about this statement?

I personally don't see rejections based on this.

mail.python.org got listed once for "spamming". Looking at the
evidence I found that somebody subscribed (using double opt in) and
subsequently receieved what he/she subscribed for. And then, somehow,
this was supposed to be spam. I then challenged the listing, nothing
happened. Nobody contacted me, nobody delisted anything.

Just let SORBS slip into obscurity.
