Of the SORBS ones I only use the DUL to reject at SMTP time.  Others
are used by SpamAssassin's scoring (whatever the default settings of
SA are).

But I am considering removing it or using it only to greylist not
reject, as I've recently become aware of their policy of not
removing entries which have a low TTL on the DNS PTR record.  I'm
not sure I agree with it.

I have not seen SORBS ignore or bend their own published policies,
so it is a matter of whether you agree with them or not.  I would be
interested to know of concrete (i.e. still listed) examples of
listings made not in conformance to their own policies.
