    The main feed; in a news aggrigator, it's the news items, in a podcast client, it's the media files.

  • iTunes RSS 2.0

    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

  • Comments RSS 2.0

    This is the feed for global comments (any comment made to the board); each entry has a seperate comments feed, too

OTR Digest again being rejected by some systems…

Filed under: General, Old-Time Radio — Charlie Summers @ 1:38 pm

Apparently a bunch of small providers are using some brain-damaged outfit called Synacor to “spam-protect” their email (Embarq is one example), and this outfit has decided the most recent issue of the Internet OTR Digest has, “spam-like characteristics.” This is geek-speak for, “our filters are too broad, and while they still allow spam to get into your mailbox, we’ll false-positive legitimate email just so we can up our rejection stats.”

Yeah, I know, I’m being a wise-guy, but it’s annoying. If you missed issue #187, you can try to pull it from the archive server but that will probably fail, too. I can’t do anything about bad code generating a false-positive for the Digest, so please complain to your provider and suggest they find some other solution to the spam problem.

Ah, well, at least this issue isn’t being rejected by AOL or the Barracuda appliance…
