SORBS REALLY needs to just go away. It's one of the worst, if not the worst implementations of anti-spam I've ever come across. Plus weren't they busted for extortion?

It was really something to see Norton generating repeated bright red "warning type" pop-ups, atop my MS Outlook interface, annoucing that my emails to a friend were being blocked because Verizon flagged them as spam. I felt . . . dirty . . and . . falsely accused.
Naturally, I wasted at least 30 minutes attempting to a) work around the problem (of being a spammer); and, b) attempting to determine why I was suddenly being flagged as a spammer and what I could do about it.
So, do you think I have a case for libel or infliction of emotional distress against SORBS? I mean, really! Calling me a spammer! :p
Okay, if not, how about a claim for compensation for wasting my time - that stuff of life that I value . . . that spammers themselves have no issue wasting? No? It's all just about email having a hefty "suck factor"?
Okay, then how about I be allowed to kick the knuckleheads who set this in motion . . in their SORBS? ;)

Hmmm. We had a problem last week with our email newsletters. We have not sent any out this week. Interesting.

You should consult a qualified attorney for answers to your questions, Webwork. Be sure they consider punitive damages to ensure no such emotional distress is inflicted again.

Webwork I really think you need to consider [webmasterworld.com...] worried about You :)

I'm pretty hardcore with my anti-spam email filters and SORBS is nowhere on my DNSBL list.
I hand checked which services were the most aggressive in filtering out real-time spam and they hardly tagged anything vs. all their counterparts that keep my inbox nice and clean.
I'm not sure why anyone would use them in the first place!

Are you in France? If so you have a good shot.

Not sure if serious but... companies aren't allowed to have problems? Do you sue every time your ISP is down?

SORBS are one of the worst RBLs on the Internet, I can't believe legit companies/ISP still use them, their list is filled with errors/false positives.

You missed the "hint" = ":p" @ end of line = "tongue in cheek" = NOT serious
