Some of the IP's I manage got blacklisted and its true they were spamming
and Sorbs had a very valid reason for blacklisting them.

I got this response response from sorbs after resolving the problem
amicably. Sorbs responded well on time.

*Your request appear to have been resolved. If you have any
further questions or concerns, please respond to this message.

Please note:

If your IP address has been delisted (marked as 'Inactive'), it will
take up to 2 hours to get from the database to all the SORBS DNS
servers.  Changes to the database are exported to the DNS zone files
periodically, not immediately after every change.  Furthermore, after
the updated database contents have been exported to the DNS zone
files, it will then take up to 48 hours for the outdated DNS
information to be removed from DNS caches around the world - none
of these are in SORBS' control.

Please do not reply to this call with problems not related to
this ticket or your request will be ignored.
