The one thing that pissed off a lot of people (and suprised me
because I have never had a listing at SORBS before, so I
couldn't have known) is the part about a the so to call
"delisting fine". Why are we forced to trust (SORBS) a
organisation in donating funds to a good case that we are
forced to provide to get delisted? SORBS has a financial
funnel to a random charity? How does this work?
SORBS doesn't collect the money and forward it to charities - the
person paying the fine pays to a charity (or SORBS nominated good
cause) which will provide a receipt that SORBS admins can verify
independently (Yes there are some who forward fake receipts)
What happens when a charity has to pay the fine?
Its only happened once, and we let the Charity off upon proof that:
1/ They are a registered charity.
2/ Thay had fixed the problem.
On the other hand the Melbourne based company that markets itself as a
charity when it is actually a non-profit and was supposedly a 'charity
marketing company' that continued spamming was escalated and the listing
followed it when it's ISP booted it.
