Re: [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
http://www.emailblockingsettlement.com 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.

One wonders what the Court would think of Verizon's failure to deliver the Settlement Notice to its subscribers.
