I have never heard it about Outblaze, but I have heard "at least we get 
a reply from you unlike with Spamhaus" several times.  The only thing I 
can't work out is why those people never post that publicly... and yet 
the same 50-100 people keep getting the same attention over SORBS time 
and time again.  I love searching "SORBS Sucks" in Google and counting 
the number of hits that are actually the same people over and over again 
on multiple lists (especially Mr "Be good to pigeons".)

The SORBS support system has become more and more stricter because of 
the people trying to circumvent the process.  There are many people that 
have no problem at all with the SORBS support system so why it is so 
hard for a few?  Perhaps it's because they don't really care about 
delisting but do care about making noise? (for example there are a 
number of people on this list that are here only to response negatively 
to SORBS issues.)
