livepenguin.com is the domain which hosts lugod.org and the mailing lists.

Perhaps when you try to post, you're posting "from"


...in turn, something somewhere says "hey, that's not a fully qualified
domain", and tacks the ".livepenguin.com" on the end of the hostname.

I am SO talking out of my a** right now, though.  I'm sure someone who
knows something will respond with something more accurate.

In the meantime, I will *sigh* continue to approve your postings when I
see them get caught by the mailing list software.  Do note that I only
go through and clean out the vox-* lists once every day or so.

99%[*] of the time, all that's in the queue are spams.  Most of them seem
like Nigerian spam.  Not sure why those get through the spam filters so
easily.  (Rod?  Ideas?)


[*] - That's an exaggeration, although once it was literally 99%...
      There were 100 messages in the queue: one real post by someone not
      subscribed or subscribed with a different address, versus 99 spams.
