This is not correct. Barracuda offer a 24 hour phone service when you
can speak to a real person should you have an issue. Getting delisted is
simple but ongoing offenders can simply forget it.

I don't agree. An IP that hops on and off lists should stay ON until the
blocklist operator is satisfied that no further abuse will come from it.
Hoping on and off as spammers/esp's run around a ring of IP's for a few
weeks defeats the point somewhat.

As for SORBS, the easy way to get delisted and quit whining about how
long it takes, is to *not* get listed in the first place. It's really a
case of actions have consequences. Not careful in your output, don't
expect any sympathy.
