Dear colleagues,

Such is the amount of bad e-mail these days that for some time, as you 
may know, filters have been established to screen out e-mail from 
certain ranges of internet addresses. By an association impossible or 
impractical to trace Humanist's sending address has ended up on a list 
of the baddies and so is being blocked from receipt by ca 100 members. 
We are working on the problem now. Of course if you receive this note 
the news won't be directly relevant to you, but if you know someone who 
has complained of not receiving postings please do assure them that 
we're paying attention.

How quaint all that palaver about the liberating force of e-mail now 
seems. It reminds me of some of what was said in the very early days of 
the telephone.
