AFAIK, the donation requirement is for getting IPs off the "your IP has 
sent us spam" subzone of the SORBS dnsbl.  Most of the people I'm aware of 
who've had issues with SORBS have wanted to get incorrect listings removed 
from the SORBS DUL

 	dul.dnsbl.sorbs.net - Dynamic IP Address ranges (NOT a Dial Up list!)

Donations won't help you there.

Shouldn't someone have tried steering this thread over to spam-l or 
someplace other than nanog a day or two ago?
