Anyone who has read my posts about spam knows that I am the spam executioner. I admit that I am an anti-spam fanatic and my spam controls on this server are Draconian even by Draco's standards.
There are many misconfigured e-mail servers out in the wild that blithely relay spam email to its targeted destination. The most notorious of these mail relays that daily task me is one of the e-mail relays at yahoo.com. Another wildly inconsistent e-mail relay is one of the AOL e-mail servers -- my efforts to bring Yahoo and AOL into the legitimate e-mail fold have met with indeterminate success. Sometimes their e-mail relays behave and deliver real e-mail and sometimes they go round the bend and spit out scads of spam.
I'm committed to overcoming the automatic rejection of reader's comments by the spam filters and, if you have a comment rejected because of a spam block on the s35 server, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will remove your e-mail address from the automatic spam filters.
The posts that Ken and I write are not one-way valves. We both value (if not crave) your feedback.
If you have something to say, please say it; if the anti-spam gods object to your post, send along your e-mail address and I'll make sure the gods are appeased.
