    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.
