Per RFC 2142 section 5, it's the standard way to reach the administrator
of the HTTP service, just as "hostmaster" is the standard way to reach
the administrator of the DNS service.   So you're both wrong: SORBS,
since it has a web site, should support the "webmaster" address; and
you shouldn't send traffic there unless your enquiry is about the
web site (e.g., difficulty accessing it, broken links, malformed pages).
