Re: [PLUG] Puzzling confirmation request

I received the same kind of message, but I do not believe that my email is bouncing

I just received a “confirmation request” that starts:

Your membership in the mailing list plug has been disabled due to
excessive bounces The last bounce received from you was dated

you re-enable your membership.  You will receive 3 more reminders like
this before your membership in the list is deleted.

I then e-mailed to ask what this was about, as I have had my Gmail address since 2004 and have never had complaints about mail delivery till now. Funnily enough, I have received e-mails from PLUG after this e-mail.

The response I got back when I e-mailed plug-owner was: 

The response from the remote server was:

550 mail to not accepted here (#5.1.1)

Any idea what's going on? Thank you very much.

Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.
- Thomas Jefferson

I despise people who go to the gutter on either the right or the left and hurl rocks at those in the center.
- Dwight D. Eisenhower

Not every child has an equal talent or an equal ability or equal motivation, but they should have the equal right to develop their talent and their ability and their motivation, to make something of themselves.
- John F. Kennedy

With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God's work must truly be our own.
- John F. Kennedy

For in the final analysis, our most basic common link, is that we all inhabit this small planet, we all breathe the same air, we all cherish our children's futures, and we are all mortal.
