[Dshield] SORBS question

SORBS is a widely used, and pretty well run, set of anti-SPAM DNS Zones
(Black-Hole Lists).

They have some reasonably effective delisting tools, and Matthew
Sullivan, who runs SORBS, is a decent guy.

Their delisting tool is here:


However, you have to be the responsible party for the IP to request
delisting. I notice that this IP is in the BellSouth domain. Bellsouth's
admins will have to request the delisting.

Does anybody have any experience with SORBS? This is my first time
experiencing a block by an ISP using SORBS.

I get a message like this. How can I stop this? I have forwarded it to
Bellsouth already, and have had a friend forward it to the ISP that
maintains the list that I'm sending to. Is there anything else that I
should be doing?
