Nothing. I don't believe in such a practice because it would be fraught
with the danger of being accused of pandering to spammers, extortion and
blackmail. Its bad enough requiring a donation to charity for expedited
delisting of just the spam DB entries.
As for an SLA the only type I would consider (hypothetically) is a "we
will provide a phone/pager number for you to call" or "we will answer
your ticket by email within x hours" type SLA. In either case there
would be a clause the states clearly that the SLA does not provide any
sort of guaranteed delisting.
PS: Have been asked to take this off list by someone who didn't identify
themselves as a list manager, but they did it politely and I respect
that, so all future replies from me to this thread will be offlist.
Please feel free to reply to me *offlist*. Thanks.
