On a related note, I've updated the list removal statement on the
SURBL web site to include:

List Removal

All of the data in SURBL lists come from external data sources.
None of the SURBL lists come from data created here, so generally
speaking to get a record off a list you should contact that data
source as described earlier under each list. However, for the sc
and ab lists you may send a removal request to whitelist at surbl
dot org. 

    Note: Before reporting false positives, please check that
    they are actually on SURBL lists. This can be done for
    example with a name resolution or by using the SURBL+
    checker tool. There is an intermittent bug with SpamAssassin
    that appears to show FPs when none actually exist. (See
    SpamAssassin Bugzilla id=3997.)

When sending a removal request, please include:

 1. Full and complete contact information for your organization
    including street address and telephone numbers,
 2. Information about your sending servers such as IP addresses,
 3. A sample message with full, sent headers and full message
    body including URIs,
 4. A brief description of your organization or a link to one,
 5. Your organization's published mail practices, especially
    its published anti-spam policies, or links to them.

If your organization does not publish and actually practice an
anti-spam policy, it should. Please send your request from your
organization's domain. Requests sent from Hotmail, Yahoo, gmail,
etc. accounts may not be considered.

How does this look to everyone?  Too strict?  Not strict enough?
Too little info?  Too much?
