Submission + - Update: 1st August 2009 - SORBS is NOT closing. (

RandomFactor writes: Update to this story

Update: 1st August 2009 — SORBS is NOT closing. Contrary to the FUD propagated by the likes of Al Iverson SORBS is please to announce that SORBS is not closing. SORBS has received 3 credible offers for the purchase of SORBS (the offer that Al Iverson made for the domain name particularly in light of the propaganda and FUD he has tried to encite is not considered credible.) Currently the two offers being considered are with anti-spam vendors and one of the two have indicated that they will not commercialise SORBS, but keep it as a community project. The other anti-spam vendor have indicated they would pursue a split commercial model, where there would be a free service as well as a 'premium' service. An announcement about which company is successful will be forthcoming when necessary paperwork has been signed. Small outages will occur in the central database when the servers are moved, this will NOT affect SORBS services globally, only updates (listing and delisting) and local (Au) services during the outages. Thank you for your continuing support. Michelle Sullivan

So close....
