No, you need to write to and, using the sysadmin
style discussed earlier, ask them politely to remove RootsWeb from
their spam filter before dozens of angry genealogists at their site
start hammering on tusc.net's tech support folks.
Do not share with them the obvious fact that they are grossly
lacking in wit and talent, being lusers who are idiotically running
a spam filter which is killing foreign sites without any review by
human operators. It is generally considered bad form to comment
upon the intellectual capacity of the staff of other sites, even
when they are plainly fools and morons. -B
