[PLUG] OT: Verizon & spam blocking

I thought this was funny in an ironic way.

Apparently Verizon was the subject of a class action for blocking mail from 
non-US servers.  There was a settlement and Verizon DSL subscribers (including 
myself) got the official notice of pending settlement from the court.  I did 
not get the notice of the settlement right away because...

... Verizon's spam filters blocked it.  I found it today in my "Bulk" mail 
folder on their server.  Bulk mail is not fetched by POP.

For the record, I actually like Verizon's spam blocking service, but this was 
too funny to be true.
