SORBS is tainted worldwide. You should hear the the laughing and negative comments about them at MAAWG and at other conferences let alone all the users that dumped them and all the legit ISPs that they held for ransom.

If they have gotten rid of Michelle and have gotten new management and gotten a new attitude they should run that up the flag pole so that everyone will know.  And, I agree they need to rebrand if they are really dedicated to a change in operations.  Then, they face the long term to get back their reputation.
