This strikes me as being some damn petty politics on verizons part.
I'm a customer because its the only game in town with affordable
broadband, by at least 30 dollars a month. So I'm stuck with it, or
a friggin dialup that is also about 30 a month more expensive.

And it seems that everytime I use the "reply all" button on this list,
I'll get at least 2 bounces because somebody elses server has
blacklisted verizon for running an open relay 2 years ago, & never
got around to lifting the ban when verizon rebuilt the systems last

One should be carefull as that shoe can fit many feet. The CC: line of
this message:

Jim Nelson <>, Russell King
<>, Andrew Morton <>,

I'm curious as to who I will get a bounce from.
