One more addition to list FAQs

We've been having occasional problems with content filtering, particularly by the mail server. The problem occurs when the receiving mail server rejects or "quarantines" a message due to "unacceptable" content, which could range from vulgar profanities through mild expletives through rough speech and even so far as a subscriber's name.

Our policy has been to contact the recipient, tell them to find a new email address if they wish to continue receiving our list, and then unsubscribe their address. (Orvis is the only one I've run into that does this so far.)

We're stepping that up and also asking anyone on the list who receive a "quarantine" notice for something they've posted to the list to forward the notice to <listmom_at_email.domain.hidden> so we can take appropriate action.

Here's the new section in the list FAQ:

We are firmly committed to the free exchange of information on our lists. Some mail servers censor incoming email -- in particular. We don't take preemptive action against subscribers using such mail servers, but we do reserve the right to unceremoniously unsubscribe them without advance notice when their content filters "quarantine" list messages. - - -
