AOL Refuses to Deliver 060702 MMDigest
By Ray Finch

Hi Robbie,  I've looked at the "offensive" link.  All I see here is
an organ builder's supply web site.  Maybe I'm not seeing the forest
through the trees, but I fail to see anything offensive about the web
site or the e-mail.

 [ The offensive element is the domain, not the web site (Kimber-Allen).
 [ An analogy is our URL, /  Nothing bad about MMD, but
 [ sometimes AOL rejects our email because the domain ""
 [ appears somewhere on a "black list" of domains that are suspected
 [ of relaying malicious emails.

Also the "un-offensive" link points to the same "offensive" link so
I don't see the problem here either.  Did the web site change
overnight?  What is the big deal here?  What am I missing?

Ray Finch

 [ The un-offensive URL is  When the web browser
 [ is connected it is redirected to the "offensive" URL.
 [ AOL explains, "There is at least one URL in your email that is
 [ generating substantial complaints from AOL members."
 [ AOL seems committed to shielding their customers from offensive
 [ email and so will reject emails which AOL believes are offensive.
 [ But for me -- I'd rather see everything and decide myself which
 [ email is offensive.
