Nafips-l subscribers,

The anti-spam experiment (see attached message
below) has not worked well. Several messages from our list's
peer group, fuzzy-mail, were rejected. If you posted a
message that was rejected, please resubmit it (you should
have received a message notifying of rejection) . The
original status of nafips-l has been restored.
We want to encourage legitimate posts to this list,
but reduce unwanted, inappropriate messages. It appears that
accomplishing this screening goal cannot be accomplished
without special attention to particular posts. Please let me
know if you have an alternative solution. In the meanwhile,
the nafips-l list will remain OPEN and some unwanted
messages may be posted, unfortunately.
