No known admin email address or no response.
No known upstream.
I agree that these may not be very solid reasons,
but I see no other way to bring things to order.

If we will need to change something within our mirroring scheme
(e.g. use of mirrorbrain or geodns, or some other change)
- we will have the problem contacting mirror admins again.

If we would not disable rsync access for non-tier1 mirrors
on rsync.archlinux.org we would never hear from some mirror admins,
that I was unable to contact until their mirror stopped working
(and BTW, some didn't even notice that at all).

It may be that my frustration influences my view,
so if you think I'm totally wrong - I will keep things as they are now.
