Today's Pet Peeve: Spam Filters

Published by: Atlas Staff
Spam is annoying. Believe me, I know. We even made a game about it.

But if you want to get a reply from us, it really helps if you set your spam filter so that it won't reject or delete our e-mails. (And note that our e-mails go out through our ISP's SMTP server, not the domain.) This is especially true if you've given us no other contact information besides your e-mail address. Michelle has had five or six bounced vis sources release form acknowledgements due to spam filters this past month, for example.

We don't have the time to try and figure our way around peoples' clever anti-spam technologies, so most of the time we don't.
