if what you're shouting is not true then you're subject to libel laws.

OTOH, if what SORBS is "shouting" is actually true (i.e. that the IP
address or the ISP responsible for that address was at one time a source
of spam) then they can publish that fact whether you like it or not.

no, it's not as simple as you'd like it to be.

if what you say is true (and/or if you have reasonable grounds to
believe it is true) then you can say whatever you like.

even if what you are saying isn't true, anyone suing would have to prove
deliberate malicious intent on your part before they could get any
compensation (in most jurisdictions - the internet is global, different
locations have different laws).
