This is likely the effect of an earlier thread where I advised list-mums 
(also via the appropriarte admin addresses. not just here)
that ubuntu's list server is blacklisted by SORBS, They apparently have 
failed to take any action to have this resolved, as I know SORBS's 
delisting is in part automatic and if it requires manual intervention, 
takes less than 24 hours from my experience. This is on going since, IIRC, 
last Sunday. The list mums are quick to re act to posts from people they 
despise, but when htey have to do some actual real work, oh my, too hard 
basket :D
