I think it is delisted temporarily. If I recall correctly, the only
way to get the server removed is if the metaserver maintainer stops
and starts the metaserver.

James, didn't you implement code that removed a server if it was longer
than 24 hours unavailable? (To answer my own question: I think not, I've 
never seen a server been removed automatically).

Please remove metaserver.eu, it is no longer operational.
