If you go an re-read the FAQ page at SORBS, the $50 donation is ONLY for
those scumbag spammers to get delisted. There is nothing to pay to get
out of the DUHL. Also, the DUHL is actually submitted primarily by the
ISP's who own the netblocks in question so its pretty easy for them to
get them take out of the duhl when they want them out.
