260573 - waiting for a response from a SORBS admin (originally requested the /22, but really only meant to request a /32)
260695 - is 260573
261026 - waiting for response from the requestor (and is now merged with 260695 as it's the same host)
261204 - waiting for response from the requestor (and is now merged with 260695 as it's the same host)
261325 - waiting for response from the requestor (and is now merged with 260695 as it's the same host)
261377 - had no information about any ticket and was logged to the lowest priority queue, and is actually the same as the above from the same requestor.
261624 - waiting for response from the requestor (and 260573, 260695, 261026, 261204, 261325, 261377 are all merged into it as then are all for the same host.)

The NAC admin had not replied to the ticket as I stated previously.

Well 3 people have ignored the last 2 sentences... so please tell me 
what is unclear in them?  The only correct response was in 260573 when 
someone responded to the robot response.  For the onlookers, please note 
that the SORBS stated reply time has been complied with in all cases, 
and had the other tickets not been logged for the same issue by the same 
requestor it would have been answered by today to stay in that response 
time compliance.
