Actually, I don't recall ever blocking anyone for sending "test, please
ignore" messages. There haven't been that many people blocked here.
The last email address blocked here was one of Linda W's addresses, at
her request and that was just about two years ago.
I really hate contributing to this because "I can't send email" messages
don't belong here but I wanted to explain what happened (I was extremely
distracted yesterday and didn't get to mention this in response to
postmaster mail) and I wanted to make sure that people perusing the
archives didn't see an unremarked upon "test/ignore" message.
Can we let this drop now? Or at least take it to cygwin-talk list if it
REALLY requires more discussion?
