'Bout time too.
Thieving pirates.  >:(
Some may see this possible closure as a bad thing. Not me.
A friends' ISP was using SORBS, and I was blacklisted from contacting him. Someone in my ISP range had been sending spam. Only recourse was to pay them an exorbitant fee to have me de-listed. My ISP was not interested in paying that fee; it amounted to "guilty until proven (or paid enough) to be innocent.
No tears shed, here.
