classifications of status, since they are based in UK.
Did you reply to the email and ask?
When my friend Norman De Forest passed away in 2006, Spamhaus
donated a data feed to his ISP, Chebucto Community Net, as a
memorial. There are human beings behind Spamhaus; perhaps you can
find a sympathetic ear. Can't hurt to ask, anyway. Good luck.
 An Internet acquaintance only, but I think anyone who came
in contact with Norman thought of him as a friend.
 Except for spammers, of course. :)
