Short Circuit's Journal: SORBS blocks GMail?

Journal by Short Circuit

I've been getting messages like these for several days.

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification
 
Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:
 
    (removed)@(removed).org
 
Technical details of permanent failure:
PERM_FAILURE: SMTP Error (state 9): 554 5.7.1 Service unavailable; Client host [66.249.92.172] blocked using dnsbl.sorbs.net; Spam Received Recently See: http://www.sorbs.net/lookup.shtml?66.249.92.172
