I'm fairly sure there are some Spamhaus people on the list, but nanog is 
not sbl-removals at  If you're having problems with SBL 
listings, you need to contact Spamhaus via the link provided on the 
page(s) for your listing(s), preserving the subject so that your message 
gets routed appropriately.

IME, if you're having trouble getting SBLs removed, you either haven't 
contacted Spamhaus properly or haven't convinced them that you've dealt 
appropriately with the issue.
