Many "dynamic" addresses listed by by SORBS are in fact statically
assigned. In SORBS-terminology, "dynamic" means "owner of address does
not control reverse DNS for address".

Feel free to drop mail from SORBS-listed addresses. If I catch a
company using SORBS for blacklisting, they get crossed off my list of
suppliers. As far as I'm concerned, SORBS is blackmail, not blacklist.
