SK: List interruption - fixed!

If you got a message about "excessive bounces" from the mailing list in the last week or two, your ISP has instituted new junk mail filtering settings which cause any message with "forged" headers to be discarded.

All mailing lists used to change the headers, and thus, looked forged, and were being rejected.

This has been a widespread problem since the middle of April or so.

The mailing list software used for this list has been corrected and can now successfully send messages to everyone.  It no longer sends "From" the original sender - it sends from the list, on that sender's behalf.

You may need to adjust your mail filtering rules to accommodate this change.

Any user who's entry on the mailing list was disabled due to the block has been re-enabled, and the list is working within the new rules pushed onto the internet by this group of large ISPs.
